FIRMAMENT

Rescued from a dark firmament:
I'm away from its oppressive sting
built up from disillusionment
where I could not do a thing

Claustrophobic was that heart
No one could enter, or exit from there
but I took a chance, and in you stepped
to catch my senses unaware

You came in as if you owned the place
and stole all that was inside;
a knowing look played upon my face
from the corners, I watched, and spied

But when I knew you'd do no harm
I leapt out of the gloom
and threw you around me like a cloak,
we exited that room

The room was built of shadows cast
upon thick walls of lead
whence emanated voices from the past
I did not hear what they said

Because I was too far away
By the time I harkened to hear-
I sensed that I'd missed nothing
as I turned away my ear

We are here in a different place
built from elements made of light
where there is no time, no sense of space
and banished is the night

Let us ascend the new firmament
and view from it the sky above
with stars and planets looking down on us
jealous, at once, of this love.
