I have been to the dark side of midnight                                                                                       And back again                                                                                                                                                                  Love has run the gauntlet                                                                                                              Fallen and risen a million times                                                                                                        Moving slowly from negative to positive                                                                                                       Until the heart has opened into the mind                                                                                                                  And the ego is no longer welcome to dance                                                                                            On the high wire of show and tell

    Until the heart has opened into the mind, love it ;}

    Very metaphoric version of the ups and downs of love spelled out in most intriging worde use. From the title all the way through you made this one speak very eloquently

    to the dark side of midnight and back again... wow.. that sounds like the back side of the moon. I'm hoping for a big door to open once the heart opens the mind... nice way to show and tell a dance of high dances... enjoyed~ Linda

    These lines..."And the ego is no longer welcome to dance, On the high wire of show and tell." The ego...oh, that tiny, tiny man. :) Those last lines have given me something to think about. Very nice poem, Michael. hugs, Catie :)
