Searching for You

Natural light obscured by swollen clouds
Rain-slicked streets offer me no reflection
Trudging on, collar high to ward off damp
As I turn a corner, searching for this, you

A frigid gale shredding the vaporous veil
Ebbs, whispering encouraging, revealing
Our spinning globe of stars and galaxies
This modest corner of infinite space, time

So dazzling, luminous, illuminating, lucent
Exposed, my hazardous passage looms large
In a constructed wilderness freshly washed
Rooted  I stand, as I yearn and burn for you

City skyline rises, ever-distant, ever-higher
My fevered eyes scanning upward, seeking
Your windows alone can look into my soul
Now found; a window near yours goes dark

Wrapping my courage around me, fragile
Armor to shield my frail skin and heart as
I skirt the bitter brink of my craven doubts
Find impetus to resume my pitiful pursuit

My tentative steps becoming bold strides
Early morning yawns, almost awake now
Earth, night, day, self all flowing together
Into this, my infinite struggle against fear

Perpetually conquered in my every dream
Cunning, victorious in my every nightmare
The sun in transit becomes my champion
I seek my life in you, creator and destroyer

Life and nourishment embodied, embraces
Death, my constant consort awaits patiently
Eager to review those roads I have not taken
In your arms, I bite my thumb at the reaper

I concede his power as fell lord of all the ages
Protected by your love, he can never touch me
Should I die this very moment, you’d hold me
As upon the highest mountain, you reveal all
