The Long Forever (standard:other, 140 words)

When you're always there.

Each night sleep entreats me 

To gently slip between the nether bonds of weary consciousness 

And the uncertain Heart of Matters 

The same place I spend my waking hours 

Captured by the remnants of silky memories 

Trapped by logic and its vacuum of time 

I instinctively know 

Physically feel 

How I need the uncomfortable serenity of darkness 

Wrapped in the tempestuous security of my greater need for You 

The foolish simplicity of slumber blurs into the glaring truth of

Burnt offerings of dreams slowly fade to ashes 

Kept warm by another day missing you. 

Between the absurdity of absence and presence 

I maintain my vigilance in the long forever 

My Heart bound with the absoluteness of loving 

And the certainty of a soul intertwined with yours. 

Here I Am 


In the Long Forever
