A Whisper From Mercy
n the midst of anguish, I have garnered
faith when all seemed lost - where the
sun set on "what I cannot change" and
cloaked me in this darkness that is
forever wrought with remnants
from our time together.
Apart from serenity, I have been hushed
in a recollection of moments that once
rendered me whole - where all it took
was your breath upon my skin to deliver
my soul from the emptiness which
lingers now without you.
Between the sorrow that consumes and "the
wisdom to know the difference", I still reach
for you when the ink from my tears scribe
bitter reminders of what is gone - here where
the words once flowed so effortlessly with
the sound of my name upon your lips.
Although tranquility comes with the dawn, I
still cling to the stars and their promise
of your touch. And though the light of day
grants a reprieve from my tears, I will
surrender to the shadows for as long as
I can reside there in your presence.
My days dwell in eternity and yet the darkness
is fleeting - but given a choice of the sun's
solace from the ache or a moon's lament in
your arms, I give you my nights and what
remains of this heart you once cherished.
Here, my love
...a step away from grace...
and a whisper away from mercy.
