Open Without Cause

With many words and expressions
you explain yourself
baring out your heart, your soul,
your experiences,
and what you’ve been through
to friends, and yet,
hunger keeps gnawing at your ribs,
thirst keeps stirring in your mouth,
“They do not understand.”

Then a person walks in through the door,
with the grace of moonbeams enters
through the midnight windows,
and suddenly, swiftly,
without warning or reason,
your soul springs out of your chest
and is utterly taken,
overcome by His radiance,
prostrated before His sword.

In this silent communion,
in the joy of this presence,
Soul is a warm stream
gushing, permeating, soaking
to the core,
Soul is the shoreless ocean,
its serene waves
are the lips of this open embrace.
