dance with me among the stars

" AMONGST THE CONCRETE BUILDINGS AND THE 
ASPHALT WALKWAYS,  FOR WHICH I HAVE MANY TYMES 
WALKED, SEEKING MY SOLATIRE  SECULAR QUEST. TO FYND 
THE TRUTH TO HOLD IN MY CHEST.

AS MY SPIRIT WITHIN ME PRAYS,
I ASK WHAT LAYS BEFORE ME.
AS A MAN, I ASK "WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO SHOW ME 
AS A LESSON OF THEE?"

AS I CONTINUE AMONG THE RUINS AROUND ME, I 
WALK AGAIN THESE ASPHALT WALKWAYS.
HENCE FROM A PLACE UNBEKNOWN, STANDS, 
BEFORE ME A SOUL.

I STOP TO TURN AND TRY TO MOVE AROUND, YET,
I CAN NOT HELP BUT TO LOOK,
REALIZING , THAT I STOPPED MOMENTARILY.

THAT SOUL WAS SHINING SO BRIGHTLY,
I FELT MY SPIRIT AND SOUL DRAWN, AS A 
MOTH TO A CANDLELIT FIRE.

 MY SPIRIT FLICKERS THAT SOUL,
AS A MOTH FLICKERS DAINTLY ABOVE
 THE FLAME,

AS I LOOK INTO THE EYES,
I  SEE THE SPARKLES, AS A
FULL MOON SPARKLES HER
DIAMONDS ON TOP OF WATER.

I TRY SO HARD NOT TO LOOK,
YET, I FALL WITHIN THE ABYSS OF
HER SOUL.

CONSUMED, AS THE FLAME CONSUMED 
THAT MOTH!! YET, I WRAP MYSELF 
OF HER WARMTH, AND TOUCH THE 
COMPASSION WITHIN LIGHTLY.

FROM WITHIN THIS ABYSS,
I SEE THE SADNESS, THE HURT, AND 
THE  PAIN.  AS MY SPIRIT QUIETLY
SHED IT'S TEARS. FOR IT IS SAME
AS  WITHIN MY SOUL.

AS I SEE HER HAND GENTLY RAISING 
UP TO ME, I FEEL OUR SPIRIT EMBRACE,
AS LONG OLD FRIENDS AND LOVERS.

I TAKE HER HAND WITHIN MYNE,
AS MY SOUL SING PRAISES TO THE
HEAVEN AND STARS.

AS WE TURN HAND IN HAND,
OUT BEFORE THE MIST,
LIES OUR STEPS,

WE BOTH LOOK BEHIND,
TO SEE THE RUINS OF WHERE 
WE CAME. YET, UNAFRAID, WE SLOWLY 
CLIMB THE STAIRS,

AWAITING THE NEW PATH BEFORE US!!
