My skin feels the surge of water over me,
my eyes do not see it,
but my mind does.
I swirl like these waves,
I do not move,
but I feel the movement.
My eyes see light above
but my mind see darkness below.
My heart warms like fire,
bursts into flames,
consumes all but water that rushes
and I am a crusifix; set ablaze, with no-one to venerate
but this self in flames.
I fall in love and that love fades
fire that consumes
amidst water that takes hold.
Eyes shut, slid down like calling sleep
to a dream we’ve just missed, lost in the first waking moments,
hearing it now calling, we close our eyes.
Light above descends as strong clouds,
darkness below rises as smoke.
They meet at earth where I float.
Separated by fire they move with purpose,
light sliding down and darkness up,
both slide in opposite ends to circle me,
only to be washed by flame.
I am alone in nothing,
only this thought exists
and the awareness of eyes shut.
Heart materialises into memory,
and with memory, all else.
Here I am standing with no-one else but a field.
Waters and flames exist, with light dancing dark
in a mind distant, but present.
