Jesus wept, Cervus wrote, God saw that it was good…

I am a poet
Alone, amongst those who would deny such a claim,
and those of my wound-mates who know it.
Something gave me that epiphany,
that Light.
The knowing, I was witnessing
the wind, the scent, the sight
Peacefully breathing
Magnificence!  Magnificent
so, you blew apart the cosmos and let me in
showed me the here and now
and the there and then and
that the end of me would forever begin
and you totally dug me.
Man, I was accepted!
And, oh, had I sinned!
But, no
you enjoyed every wounded aspect of the soul I’d been.
You saved my life.
Where are you now, my friend?
I know you’ll be there at the end
but what of that taste?
Love? Life?
Where are the arms of this Love I can wrap myself in while I’m here?
I pray
can you physically one day hold my face gently and say
Oh, my beautiful soul, every thing is all ways ok!
I Love you!
All of You!
The bent and the straight of you,
the murky and the clear,
the smooth and the rough.
Would that I should seek you within where I’m not quite enough
in my own heart, seduced by fear.
Oh, my BeLoved,
lead me beside still waters
restoreth my soul
Naked, surrendered, clear,
make slow abandoned Love with me, my dear
and hold the special space where we become the Seer
of all that beauty
and connection
Love, and Truth, and Light
no Original Sin, only Original Right…
I’ll open up my world to let you in.
And yet, this fear within, knows that prayers are given
in response to the desire deeply hidden
within the hearts intent.
The Universe nods to our wants or whim
and we get what we’re sent
exactly what we believed we deserved.
We are heard.
We are free, and I see
because the BeLoved Loves me
very fucking rarely.

HAH! Your title is so arrogant that I can not help myself but want to give this a 1
and want to kick your pants until there's nothing left but the pockets. but then the reading flows wonderfully with lines like rivers with hardly a stone, even at the cliches that usually make others S C ReeeeCH.

Kick my pants, mate.  Go hard.  I could do with a good one.
 — CervusWright

Arrogant? i don't see that at all. You must be arrogant yourself to notice such a thing.
 — unknown

 — JCDorris

Thanks for the feedback, everyone. Much appreciated.
 — CervusWright

Like 34-36 very much, particularly "the bent and the straight of you."
As noted by others, flows without a hitch.
I rather like the blunt laic ending, it was unexpected.

P.S. Great title!

I want to know, do you still see 11:11?

This had me grinning throughout as the overtly polished positive feelings gushed into lines that are unique but aware of how we can convince ourselves we care for something greater than our body-of-cycles canny deductions...

Write on cervus with a bullet ...
 — AlchemiA

oh yeah the rhythms 'n cadences are sweetly rendered throughout, where it flows with magniloquence, like honey on the sharp-edge of a knife, and we get-it, we see that mostly we don't end up with our first choice of beloveds, rather, we end up loving the one we're with, and I was with you in this poem all the way through ...

 — AlchemiA

Oh yeah, I love the title too.

My favourite line in this, and for me, where the poem is, is 37

"Would that I should seek you within where I’m not quite enough"

So beautiful.

Thanks for the read,

You should always approach a reliable supplier. A replica watches which gives you the assurance and the warranty should always be preferred. Asia is big hub for the manufacturing of these watches. It a solid piece and rolex replica sale because of that rubber strap. It more sporty actually because the watches collection is essentially a sports rolex replica uk collection though they do have casual leather replica watches available on the originals too. I bought this watches sale as soon as Ive seen it being put up for sale. It was love at first sight. This may be the manliest watch Ive ever seen. It raw, it rugged, tag heuer replica awakens primal feelings that all men have inside, even if they are in a dormant state. The rubber straps are a new addition in making all of their pieces more casual and replica watches and easy to wear.
