The Soul

Soul Storm
9" x 12" acrylic on canvas

We fidget there
in the nightmare of memory,
the tumultuous and dangerous winds 
that chase sleep
from our weary minds

Resting in each other's arms,
We seek the shelter of reality
as found in the scent
of a lover's skin

There we reaffirm moments
spent in midnight silence, 
my head resting upon your chest,
your heartbeat singing beneath my ear
with the enigma of universes

We are twin souls
from the same Eden,
standing at the gates once more
hoping to be allowed 
back Home.
