What's in a Soul

Maybe love?

Some person that changed you?

Some thing that saved you?

What you spend your time on?

Or, how you plan to live long?

The sudden thrill of that night two years ago

with dancing and lights and laughing and smiles?

Some dark tune meant for demons

The whispering thoughts of screamings

And quick wishings for endings

Shivers that have no forgiveness

Revenge on horrors

And slight shifts in location 

from the bridge to the river?


For me, right now

It's Maryanne

standing so still at the end of the dock

she is so still

like some flower

a gently coming dawn

a serenely floating lily

peaceful and holy

Perhaps dreaming

Perhaps only sleeping

With me caught in a mystery.
