If I were to be a burst of light on the face of the ocean,
when you are sinking, deep,
into the darkness…
If you wandered the rode that I forsook,
and went as far as boredom goes, in a lonely heart,
then went beyond the empty realm of space and time…
If I was the one to yield, to flee a fight,
to break an oath, or fear a might, of friend or foe…
you would then shed your light on me, my darkest side,
and open up your gaze, so wide,
to see beyond the sight of eyes, into my shell…
and then behold, what made you me, and made me you, deprived of place, beyond the time.
Maybe then you’d kneel and pray, to me, my lord,
You’d let me be.
