I wander in the dark expanse of dreams,
Led only by my heart's familiar beat --
Reality unraveled at the seams,
And curled in gentle mists about my feet.

Led only by my heart's familiar beat,
An echo in the silence so profound --
And curled in gentle mists about my feet,
The silken skeins of Fate enshroud the ground.

An echo in the silence so profound:
A heart that beats in cadence to my own;
The silken skeins of Fate enshroud the ground,
Along the mystic path to the unknown.

A heart that beats in cadence to my own,
Through swirling mist and soundless darkness, calls --
Along the mystic path to the unknown
With hidden purpose do my footsteps fall.

Through swirling mist and soundless darkness, calls
A voice that whispers covenants of bliss;
With hidden purpose do my footsteps fall,
Now quickened by the promise of a kiss.

A voice that whispers covenants of bliss --
My lonely heart now burns with longing fire --
Now quickened by the promise of a kiss,
I'll find this soul -- else drown in my desire.

My lonely heart now burns with longing fire;
So close -- the sound rings louder in my ears --
I'll find this soul, else drown in my desire;
At last, a distant shadow does appear!

So close: the sound rings louder in my ears,
A beacon in this strangely silent storm;
At last, a distant shadow does appear:
My heart's most treasured secrets, given form.

A beacon in this strangely silent storm,
His smile of welcome, offer of embrace:
My heart's most treasured secrets given form,
I lift a reverent hand to touch his face.

His smile of welcome, offer of embrace --
As trembling lips unclose to breathe his name,
I lift a reverent hand to touch his face --
Which fades into the mist from whence it came.

As trembling lips unclose to breathe his name,
A mourning cry for what had never been,
Which fades into the mist from whence it came.
I now must pay the penance for my sin;

A mourning cry for what had never been;
Upon the perfect calm I did intrude --
I now must pay the penance for my sin:
Entrapped in self-inflicted solitude.

Upon the perfect calm I did intrude --
Reality unraveled at the seams --
Entrapped in self-inflicted solitude,
I wandered in the dark expanse of dreams.

I cannot think of any words to say that would do justice to this poem. Please just accept a hearty "well done" and know the feeling behind it.
