To Reach

Thundering heart
My own I hear
Pounding ‘neath the darkness’ leer-
Defying life
To pass it by
Deriding night with anguished cries-
Encased in flesh
Caught like a bird
Struggling vainly to flee this earth
Cupped in palm
To still its throb
Hold it still and feel its sob-
Blanket night
Thrown over me
To suffocate my thundering beat-
Quell my passion
Quiet my lust
Kill the demons that scream and clutch-
and when it’s done
I’ll lie beneath
The waters of tranquility-
My heart released
To thunder on
Beyond some long-forgotten dawn.
