Opus

And there are words, often useless, often noise
Sometimes they are more
Small pieces of a history set free
Bit by bit they leave and take
Small shards of what I used to be
 
And I am less, yet I am somehow more for the loss
Fallen to the ground, or received
Parts of me are gone, never again to be found
If heard, if understood, they live on in another
As I become unbound
 
In a here that never was,
Shared with what always was…
What will always be…as it was in the beginning
Is now…and always will be
More words spoken in the dark night
 
And I pray, though I am not a Christian
I meditate, though the East is but a dream
And the words rise
I release what is left of me
So little remains to be said
 
When they are done
There will be peace
Empty to accept
That I am
With nothing left to say.
