The ecstasy is inside.
From heaven's stare you cannot hide.
There is blood on the rose.
Where there is fear and confusion.
Your tears.
Your tears through the
Timeless cycle of years
Wash it away.
Please wash it away.
If what is to be
Is created in a certain way
Where water, air, light and music
Believe
Would you ask why?
For evil has had its day
In crisis the angels did fight
While the night had no comment.
Shadow boxes and Icons
Lay shattered and emptied
But you were not deceived.
It was a very long day.
For a time, there was a
Hurculean silence.
And the meek sought no charity.
With no crushing soliloquy
If I could
Relieve the pain
Buried in your eyes
And order the roses
Coloured a different hue...
I want to.
But the deck was
Reshuffled by unseen hand
And now I, in determined
Forward past stand.
So, just jump.
And don't look back.
I'd have you remember,
Even in daylight
It is the middle of the night.
For, we seek to immortalize
The soverign in which
Hope does lie
And we are born to realize
That although we must someday die
Our hope in forever lies.
There is blood on the rose
Where there is fear and confusion.
Your tears.
Your tears through the
Timeless cycle of years
Wash it away.
Please wash it away.

Rarely have I seen a strife-ridden work from you, my friend.... May a ray of sunshine befall you.....

Read your poem a while ago.  Find myself returning to read it again.  Don't normally do that.
