The Chaos of Life


in this long and empty night
i look
into the chaos of life
and find your essence
the wondrous fragrance
of love
divine
poetry rises
like the sun in the nick of time
energising my soul
but what if
the gentle rivers of gold run
through my veins
this precious moment?
will the
hungry birds sing?
will you set my soul on fire
this winter’s night?
and
what if i pray
oh my God
oh my precious one
will you
taste my dream with
glossy lips
feeding my longing?
