Poem to a friend
Poem to a friend
You stand before me, eyes downcast
Answers you seek, to questions unasked.
Confused and bewildered ~ alone and sad
You came to me, seeking, sky clad
Your fate is yours, I say
Your plea "Enlighten me ~ Show me the way!"
Slowly your head begins to rise
Surely now, you can attain the prize?
You struggle with the darkness ~ imposed from within?
You fight constantly ~ a sense of self to win?
Perhaps today you'll be strong enough to look
And discover answers not written in a book.
You have a keen mind ~ filled with ideas and thought
Finely honed ~ but lacking the direction you've sought.
Stumbling around like a child without a task.
Seeking answers, you've come and imploringly ask,
"What do you mean when you say to look inside?
Are the answers there and from me they hide?
I see your eyes so bright and clear
Filled with pain and just a touch of fear.
Hidden are the emotions ~ you do it well
Deep within that facade you call a shell.
I stroke and caress, I let your body know
That sensual spirit is wanting to grow
Your lips twitch with a hint of glee
At last, you think, you've found a key
You hear me speak of love and life
Of friends I've helped in their times of strife.
But alas ~ the path is so easy to miss
Oft only revealed in the passion within a kiss.
In the beating of your heart is revealed
A history of sadness and betrayal to be healed.
A void lies within, longing to be filled
I can be a guide, a mentor, a shield.
But the path is yours, no longer can you balk
With a trust, that by your side I will walk.
Down into the darkness seeking your light
You know you're not the first in this plight.
Others have paid the ferry man's toll
Not knowing the price - the loss of a sensual soul.
The journey's not easy and can often be long
Discovering kindred spirits to join in their song.
You stand before me ~ your eyes open wide
Seeing at last, the volcano inside.
A person imbued with the heat of a star
No longer hiding the person you are
You stand before me ~ finally seeing
You stand before me ~ a proud, sensual being.
This truth exists in a moment, a place
The present a gift, we must fully embrace
Tomorrow who knows where either will be
For right now it is only you and me
But never again can you put on a shelf
The sensual being that is your sensual self.

I've had to read this several times. I will have to read it several more times.|
For any sensual person this idea of being "present" to the moments of sweet life. May you have much sweetness and the ability to be "present" to life.
