    Like Tantalus reaching for
    the fruit suspended just near his grasp, I reached.
    I reached and a stale wind blew what
    I needed away.
    I almost gave way to decay,
    but was renewed by the
    pure sounds of compassion
    that surrounded the layer's thick dark
    that melted a thousand midnights
    and destroyed ten million sunlights.
    Still...
    Like the ill fated Kassandra, cursed
    to bear prophesies of truth that were
    never to be believed,
    The truth I began to speak was
    never recieved, and still I searched.
    Gently stepping into the Elysian fields.
    The essence of you resounding from
    hill to hill.
    Tibetan mountain views, and Egyptian landscapes
    form the basis of my dreams,
    which weave themselves in complicated pattern's
    on my minds sleeve.
    Depriving me of sleep, but inducing me
    with a desire to obtain you for myself and
    exist in your purity.
    So I reach, and reach with the hopes that i'll
    grasp what is new;
    The sweet soul of you, raining on me like
    fresh water dew.

    the river flows deeply...

    with swirling undercurrents pulling strongly at the fringes of life. LOVED THE FLOW OF THIS PEACE.

    let the river flow.
