Search And Hold The Deep

Search And Hold The Deep

Hands bound   in blindness   holding the deep
Straining and weeping       with and against
Invisible darkness   hiding the light
Gnarled in knots     the heart draws back

Straining   and weeping with    and against
Wind twisting      and whipping      bleaching the dream
Gnarled     in knots    the heart draws     back
Pink Slippers in unison     refuse to be still

Wind    twisting and whipping   bleaching      the dream
Wanting     is left as each brittle   hope       cracks
Pink    Slippers in unison refuse to be      still
The tempest above     parts the curtain        of peace

Wanting   is left     as each    brittle       hope    cracks
Submission is      fought      as each arrow strikes      fast
The tempest   above   parts  the     curtain of peace
Standing      light’s stillness     as  mourner’s embrace

Submission is fought    as    each   arrow         strikes fast
The fetters will melt   the hands           still holding the deep 
Standing   light’s stillness       as     mourner’s     embrace
Gentleness surrounds      Arrows fall    miss their mark

The fetters will melt          the hands still holding the deep 
Breathless caress searches      in the altar      of light
Standing     light’s stillness in      mourner’s embrace
Mirror is shattered    by long echoes   love quietly      waits
