FLOAT

FLOAT

I struggled wildly through confusion,
under great duress
I tore at it, I stumbled,
I cried out in deep distress
Breathing hard, I faltered, my heart stood still with fear,
My feverish brow was lathered
I brushed aside each tear.
Nowhere could I find a path
to lead me in my way,
All was empty wilderness
Just a lonely cold foray.
 
The wind whipped up a frenzy,
 thunder claps rolled loud,
Lightening flashed across the sky
Revealing angry, lowering cloud.
Voices cried... come back,
my heart beat wild with fright,
I sought to escape the darkness,
The sadness of the night.
 
What of those haunting doubts, 
saying what I shan't.
The voices calling from the past
Calling, no you can't.
 
Suddenly
 the earth it shuddered,
then all stood deathly still,
I watched the raindrops glisten
Gently as they fell.
The colors of the rainbow dried the tears upon my face
Gentle dripping, caressed my mind,
Like intricate white lace.
 
My eyes lifted to the heavens,
as sunbeams filtered through
The clouds rolled back like parchment
Unfurling panoramic view
For there before me stood a gate,
open.......swinging wide,
It beckoned me with welcome
So I quickly slipped inside.
 
The path led through a garden,
as lovely as desired
Golden beauty glowed before me,
 
For this I had aspired.
I peered into the distance
and saw such glowing light,
Alluring me to push ahead,
To leave behind the night.
 
Thus, I ventured forward,
until a staircase greeted me,
I glimpsed ahead the castle,
 
And my name called.... tenderly
Suddenly my worn dress became purest white
I felt myself drawn up
The turrets faded out of sight.
 
Compelling
..love..
drew me forward 
...ever on...
my upward flight
 
"lift"
"yearning"
exhausted
 fight
exploded 
into
everlasting light
 
My dream come true
forever delight
Prince
of life.
