Like mystical creatures, coming awake from Eons of sleep
My breath is heavy, my chest heaves
As I run from tree to tree
The wind howls, through the shadows
My hair is dishevelled, wet from anticipation
My heart beckons, you called me here
Yet I cannot see you!
My heart races as I search with every breath
Bewildered, lost, aching for you
Heart beats are magnified
The yearning will surely rip my heart, straight from my chest.
I cannot bear this enchantment.
Falling to the cold ground I collapse,
My body withered, tired of the struggle
It surrenders to the longing of you
Letting go of any torment
It floats like a fallen petal.
I feel you, you whisper into my ear
‘I was always waiting for you, my Love, yet I could not reach you,
Each time I moved towards you, you pushed me away.’
Startled I open my eyes to see
Through the dim light I see a faint shadow,
Holding me, arms outstretched.
In the light I could not make out the face.
I answer; ‘How could this be? I yearned for you all the time, my heart breaks for you.’
He moves closer, mesmerised I look deep into his eyes.
‘My dearest I could only reach you when you let go of the struggle,
And allowed the pain to open you completely.
Only then I could walk out of your heart.’
