Take Me Beyond All This

Take Me Beyond All This
Take Me Beyond All This

Take me through the threshold,
beyond pain and confusion’s state,
and tempt me not with lies and colored baubles,
instead let truth abide and me to sate,
for I am no pillar of virtue,
no model of sagacious will,
just a soul in mourning
for all that tainted the beauty I’ve tilled.

Lead me to the waters,
to quench this unquenchable thirst,
for life has dried me like a desert stone,
indisposed and prone to maudlin thoughts,
halcyon days when love was sought and revered,
not despised and painted with the blood of hatred,
a world now faced with truth
and all but disappeared.

Take me to the summit,
where the air is thin and everything below
is just a speck in time and space,
and from here I can erase
the suffering below,
not hear the screams of innocents,
the hopeless tears of changeless stigmas,
standing in a row.

Let me sleep in dreams of old,
when life was sweet
and love was all that mattered,
not shattered like some whim to be dismissed,
but held in embrace and nurtured,
and bliss was all there was,
the world a place of beauty,
and everything within, a potential,

I need to see some possibility,
some change for love,
when all I see is greed and selfish reigns,
persecution and all I once loved turned to salt,
dismal rains to wash those sins away,
to cleanse a world far deeper in mud
that could ever completely claim, purity,
and so I pray, until obscurity.
