A waiting time

It is a lovely time

When I know that u will come to me free of all shackles

Of only feelings that we will share

Of love that just does not covet

Of dreams that do not possess

Of travails to worlds flung far far above

Of horizons seen but never walked upon



Be warned oh foolish one

When you leave me to walk a path that few dare


When you love me and endanger me by making me want to die for you


Consumed by an unholy passion


I now dare the world to look me in the eye and tell me that I have sinned


By loving, by creating, by being consumed by a raging fire that few can douse





What mindless follies have we committed in the name of love?


When we anger, when we covet, when we do unto the world some wierd sin that few

would call Love??



When we threaten to jump into abysses of the mind?


Where we drown and embroil in our own created heights of fear??

Never would I, a pure woman, would want a fate such as that..



Where I am running from my own shadow..to drown and be consumed in a fire that not

even I,

As a protector can salvage...



Walk away from me oh beloved one

For we are not meant to be...



Not meant to be consumed, destroyed, to perish in a hellish fire of unholy love

Where one only covets, owns, possesses...


Set me free

Free to fly the wind

Free to be unshackled from you insanely so


When the ropes get untied



I smile and I hurry to leave you


To fly into a horizon that I will now walk


Patiently waiting for time to take hold of me


And throw me into the oblivion that we call......


We still do not know what we may call it...


But for now, let's call it Life....





For in death, we do not exist


We do perish but we...we do not exist....



Just call it Life so it does not end....


And give me meaning and my life a purpose to be reborn


For then we can once again possess, covet...own


And so we go on and on


Till time has finished its hourly routine


And the sun has lost its energies


The moon has moved into a galaxy beyond


The planets have submerged into deluges and oceans


And the air has become a vast stillness


Then we can pause...and say



Oh we have come a long way


And justifiably so



No more yearning for pleasures

Or love

Or cauldrons of hell


Now we just rest...and wait...


For a new world to be born...


Of only love, pure as distilled water



Pure as the earth mother


A love that has no depths


No limits except of sanity

Only a love that can be eternal

Can be told that it is holy


So let us wait oh beloved one



For such a time....

In a world that we call our own

Where only Utopia can be seen

Let us wait..Oh let us wait..
