Behind the Back of Bliss

There is a place I'll wish to never know,
Where breath is black behind the back of bliss.
Green is the grace I glare for God to grow,
Myself, my soul, and life I mourn to miss,
As tears have torn taunting a tale of this.

Fate of my fears are fortunes I have failed,
As stars are ships to seas that have not sailed,  
By seamen searching through a sin of soul.
Kneeling on knees in knots as if I'm nailed,
I gleam on garden's green glories thy goal!

    Well Johnny, how heavily profound your thoughts are here!!! Somewhat dark, but searching, and by the end of the last stanza, it seems more colourful and bright? Have great evening! Mikki
