"empty"
is the vessel's curse
thirst
the tears appear on stone
"fill me"
is the test of flesh
as hunger
teases needs atone
"hear me"
oh please heed my cry
say to me I'm understood
"talk to me"
I'll curb the tongue
and banish fingers from the words
that built the barriers.


"empty"
is the vessel's curse.
let this cup pass
no
Let it be...
fill the chalice
lessening
the presence
of
myself
in me
living waters
filtering
impurites
of greed...

I see only a brilliant light of good, kindness and love in you m'friend, but enjoyed this winter soltice and your atonement prayer so much.  I know you shall be heard, and I shall pray in my way for you to be spoken to and filled.

Love you much, lady...

love of power the world will know peace.

Very powerful, from a place that had to be raw.

If this continues, you should drink two philtres and call me in the morning.
