Storms of Hearts and Minds

by Ben   Feb 1, 2018

The everlasting storm that ruptures
between my heart and mind, finds itself locked
amongst dreams within illusions of love
and nightmares of loneliness.

In the darkest moments I am alone,
one cup, one chair, half a heart.
Desperately searching for a faceless love in
a wretched, imprisoned and Godless realm.

Like reflections in a rock pool, as I attempt
to grasp them, you forever slip between my hands
as mist on a spiders web, only a shadow
of what used to be, lacing my fingers with memories.

In the eye of this storm comes the calm,
Serene and comfort surrounded by purest air.
No longer searching, encompassed, engulfed and
bathing in your light and love, perfectly content.

Your grace lures me into a comfortable numbness,
where time falls away, my illusions now solid,
my dreams reality and whilst my eyes dance with yours,
you bring my soul home.

My storm is now a breeze, heart and mind one with yours,
free to mold our love in our own reflections,
no longer chasing apparitions, only beckoning the future,
with open arms.
