I Am Gone


I am gone from here.
I have left this earth,
And found myself on the plains
Where Gods walked amongst their creation.

I have found myself amongst the flowers;
The petals who knew what love was,
And poisoned all those who touched them,
Drowning them in cheap infatuation.

I have found myself amongst the hummingbirds,
Tinged green and darting for life,
Their wings ever humming alive
With muted songs of beating hearts.

I have seen the beasts who walk
In perfect harmony with Nature;
Burgeoning chaos and endless cycles,
The brutal crone and the loving mother.

And I have seen the air breathing,
The ground churning while fires burn,
The water raging and calm,
All pinned by the inexplicable.

But I am beyond the infatuated flower,
And the chaotic beasts,
And the humming of the hummingbird heart.
Beyond even the balanced elements.

For I am still lost in these climes,
These places; these new and ever ancient sensations,
Burning with passion and ice,
That you have overwhelmed me with.

And I could only dive in,
If you were to dive with me.
