unfettered

I wonder
if one day
some day
we’ll settle in
to our skin
just in time
to kiss goodbye
and break up
and fall apart
into rubble
stone and water
starting all over
as it was
in the beginning
and ever shall
be repeating

I wonder
if we’ll ever consider
the ordinary things
that affect time
like gravity
and where we place our feet
and stress hormones
and how fast bodies move
towards
by
and away
from each other
and how time
would stop
all together
if those bodies
were to touch

I wonder
if we’ll ever reach
the irrevocable era
when blood
is freely given
never taken
when souls
are not forsaken
only heart-beaten
battered by loss
and unfettered adoration
marred by the scars
of tally marks
of the days
since we laid
down our arms
so as to lay
in each other’s arms

    Yes, I always find that right when I accept some bad thing and learn to love the challenge, then it disappears… once we learn to love, then the world can end… guess it will be a while… if only we could get back into the garden of eden and the beginning before we started thinking we could do things ourselves… when we just fix our eyes on God and stay in union with Him, then we are good and holy… it’s when we think we have control that we fall….
