Touch Me With Light

Touch Me With Light

A Chapter by TL Boehm
"

could be a poem. could be a prayer. could be garbage.

"

Are you with me

At the cusp of the torrent

Gray skies ragged

And the hungered earth

Beneath my tread worn feet

My veneration sanguine

Etched in weathered stone

As the birds of the air

Snatch your sustenance from

My blistered tongue

Bring me to my knees

Scrabbling at the door

That never opens

I can see past my imagination

To eternity

And I am but damp breath

Panting for you in the gathering storm

Time is a finite line

Destiny a place where the promise

Of your arms surrounding

My fractured soul  

Is the transient fragrance

Of crushed petals that bleed out

Through my clenched fists

Token moments can’t sustain

I need you now

To touch me with light

Again.

thank you Sheema
Your
Poetic fingers
Glide across the loom
Producing poetic prayers
Which span across
All religious believes.

Touching all
By the breathe
Of your skill touch.
