Thin Words

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I seek an honesty that most fear

Open your soul to the light

Dark moon rises flanked by

Indigo clouds flush with the hidden

Show me your sunlit darkness

Diluted words will not satisfy

 

What do you crave?

What can you tell no one else?

Confessional, such a Christian ideal

Yet I will absolve you

Can you feel the depth of my truth?

Together we will become

 

If we lived in another time

I would fight side by side with you

Shield to sword, sword to shield

I would give my life for you

If you spoke your truth with me

Loyalty lasts as long as integrity

 

If we lived in another time

I would love you vigorously

Nights of impassioned embrace

Lush with the possibility of life

So long as you spoke your truth

Love is the light of integrity

 

If we lived in another time

You would call me wife

Challenging false integrity

Empowering those belittled

Potent force facing darkness

With love and integrity of steel
