Unabashed Confusion I -Where Am i

Where am I?

I stand softly, I lean

against a vine-stained wall,

gilded in ancient cracks and 

crowned with thorns.

I stretch, I hold out my

arms,  Christ-like, to you.

My trembling fingers curl upward

in prayer, 

catching rain and blood kisses

in spiraling rivulets, caressing

the air we displace together.

My lashes shiver, cold

with emotion, fringed with pearls.

my lips curve, alabaster sheen,

not smiling, a supplication,

around the message in my eyes –

my eyes that plead

from a soul’s capacity for sorrow

unabashed in confusion.
