secret lovers

I long to be alone with only you

to escape into the emptiness of solitude

and enter holy santuary

 

Retreating to the depths of my soul

where you wait to rendezvous with me

like a clandestine lover

 

In secluded silence, I savor the beauty

as I bare my soul to you

and you reveal yourself to me

 

Then in total isolation

I find refuge in your arms

as we sanctify our union

and you become incarnate within me

 

But we are followed

by the encroaching feet of reality

which come to stomp upon our hallowed ground

 

Breaking the reverence

with urgent amplifications

of life’s neccessities

 

As your arms of mercy slip away

my heart mourns the loss

and I hear you grumble

“how much longer must we hide”

 

But lord, you are within me

and I cannot cast you out

For your Love grows inside of me

 

and I shall find a way
