You gave me a mind that expands To encounter your vastness, And finds in those fathomless depths Its own luminous nature.
You gave me a soul that won't rest With any barrier to you, Be it heavy and dense Or gossamer as a veil.
You gave me an old structure Made up of my history; It is heavy and dense, It is gossamer as a veil.
I meet it, allow it, explore it And still it grinds on, A machine that relentlessly churns out Old patterns and tendencies.
I embrace it, dissolve it, release it -- S till it keeps reincarnating, Rising up from some ancient template Held deep in my bones.
I don't begrudge you your sense of humor, Beloved trickster, But I do wonder, now and then, What you have in mind.
Did you make me to realize a freedom I can't fully embody? Do my heart and soul burn for a truth That I can't fully live?
I commune with you in the heavens -- It's not hard to find you there; But I need you down here, In the marrow of my bones.
You can't turn away now -- stay here; I will have this out with you. You started something with me, And now I want it finished. Yes -- I will wrestle with you on this one, Beloved torturer; I will wrestle you all the way down To the very ground
