Free the words entangled
In the sharp night air
Seer of guidance by choice.
Let me touch all the wishes
That have escaped
With that silent breath
That tries.

In step and beyond confusion
Brilliance confounds the day
While the path forward
First separates then breaks
First into emotion, then desire.

While somewhere gathered
On time stilled water
Are those twinkling lights
Who chose a parallel course
Undefined by the mind
Romanced by the heart.
It is there the passion starts.

Riding in midnight dark
That surrounds at twelve
I choose to follow
Night’s quickened gaze.
And in finite, endless sleep
Both find and refuse
The answer.

For only in the word I trust…
One which cannot be spoken
And is not yet written
And remains
Entangled in the sharp night air.

Soleil,
Well done
I read it twice
And it's more then nice.

No doubt about the entire poem being well written but that last stanza blew me away. Wonderful writing, Soleil.

 To the world you might be just one person but to one person you might just be the world.

Guilty!  I'm guilty!  I missed this and they're right, this is wonderful work.
