The Swirling Dervish
I thought I was on the path
delving deep inside, within
where dervishes swirled
to the tune of a mystical mind....
I thought I had left behind
the debris of drunken desires
and moulted into a soul divine
taking to flights, so unimaginable....
I thought I had broken free
of bonds beyond reason
of love without a season
only to soar with passion, so unreasonable....
And now here I lie again, delving deep within
trying to mend broken beams of light
carefully cupping hope and love
in the cracked crucible of life, though so imperfect....
