beyond the veil

beyond the veil

Enjoy Art | Poetry


it’s there

but you don’t know it

it’s there

but you can’t see it

it’s there

and you can’t feel it

are you blind

are you deaf

have you no mind

i’m asleep

i’m asleep

i’m asleep

the veil is so sheer

yet it’s like steel

like metal

like armor

holding us apart from you

who chooses to part the veil

is it you

then why

may i be bold and ask

why is this grace for me

why can i see

why do i feel

so much, so much, so much

do they know

will you tell them

of this world

beyond the veil

will you tell me

where we go

beyond the veil

is there another

and another

and then

another

take me please

take us all

clear the way

so we might

live, love and be

in the windowless night

of stars shining down

of love’s lost moments

all around us

and in us

and then there you are

my love

my love

is there a form

shall i see it

or is this dance

of light

your

exquisite

radiant

form
