Thirsting at the Well

Gold Medalist For Poetry, July, 2010.


Lingering in the shadows away from the naked light;

there’s a complete eclipse of my mind

in this spiritual corner of night ~

I see the stars; feel the breeze,

but just can’t focus my mind.

There’s a cold and hollow world trying to chill my heart;

Ghostly images strut in front of me

and I must play a tiny part

in this eery, faithless drama

that’s grabbing at my heart.

Dreams are holding me hostage in the deepness of the night,

I am firmly mired in the muck

yet reaching for lofty heights.

Can feel them yet can’t touch them;

Just can’t focus my racing mind.

Then I’m standing in the shadows, shivering and alone.

I’m thirsting at a wishing well,

the hand above me is my own.

With one final desperate wish

I`m dropping my very last coin.

Waiting, waiting at the well, hoping to hear the splash.

How can I ever get my wish?

How could I be so rash?

In the still silence of the shadows,

aching dreams are gone in a flash.

Dreams are holding me hostage in the stillness of the night,

I’m firmly mired in the muck

yet reaching for lofty heights.

Can feel them but can’t touch them;

can’t even focus my mind.~

Waking in a cold sweat,

can’t even focus my eyes ~

can’t focus, can’t focus ~ my mind.

Feel better soon.

This is a masterful expression of the Dark Night of the Soul. We have all been there, one time or another. This is exactly the sort of thing that artists are supposed to express for those who cannot. Wendakai, if this is your current state rather than a submission of an old poem, I hope you feel better soon and that you gain a deeper understanding of your place in the cosmos through your difficult experiences.
