Dreams & Delusions…

Star Soul


I’ve been in the dark so long,
I’ve grown accustomed to this-
But, this is no ordinary abyss…
My night vision sharpened,
I see more than black here,
My vision no longer veiled by fear…

Violet, indigo, and deep green
Swirl in the endless dense fog
Within…Β  My dark is not empty.
I’ve wandered for what seems
Like an eternity, I don’t remember
Beginning, or ever being aware
Of an end, it just is…Β  I just am.

In my wanderings, I found
The synergistic bond within,
Where darkness and light
Are no longer opposite…
Where they run parallel,
Twisting, flowing like water…
Intertwining in double-helixes,
In intricate, infinite knots…

For within me, there is also
A well of stars and molten gold.
A pool of the purest source,
I’m drawn into it’s healing force…
An awareness washes over me,
This is the love I was created to be…

I’ll dip my fingers in liquid light,
And dance, slinging luminescence
Through this dark, until you see me
Until I see you, feel you, heal you…
And the smile in your heart heals me, too…

Do not fear the duality in your soul,
It’s this very struggle which keeps you whole.
We thrive in darkness, as well as light,
We need both, to remember what’s right.
I’ll hold you within, ’til the dawn breaks bright,
Loving and healing you through this long night…

    Divergent not parallel. I love this. It’s like a warm blanket inside and out. It’s absolutely gorgeous. ❀

      Sorry. Parallel paths never touch. O:

      • They weren’t touching, then they were… O.o

        Hahaha! Yes. Yes they were. I remember the first time I realized that.

    • I’m healing, wanted to pass it along…

      Do you ever wish you could control your brain like a video camera? This is me attempting to hit ‘record’… I really wish I could fully express this experience the way that I experience it. I’m rambling, now… I’ll stop. πŸ˜‰ ❀

        Yes!!! I never know if I quite captured it, but I totally get what you are saying and I happen to agree with you. I call it the eye of the storm. My secret garden. Let them settle in together. Wanna come watch Netflix with me? 😘

  8. The brilliance of starry sky silhouettes the captivatingly lonely tree and sensuously dark earth in the foreground, in just the same way as light and shade dance to create exceedingly beautiful images in your poem… My thanks to Barbara for re-blogging and best wishes to the promising poet… Raj.

  9. I love this poem. The lines,

    “We thrive in darkness, as well as light,
    We need both, to remember what’s right.”

    are very powerful!
