awaiting me

awaiting me

i have emptied all my pockets
looked in all the secret places
i turn every stone i see
i cleave the wood
looking for that sacred key
to that which is locked up
inside of me

the angst
and disparity
bemuses me
and i smile

but for a little while
i tarry here at the bend of the road
with my temperance
for my self
while i await you
oh wayfarer
to show me the way
to me

where belies my sanctity
i ask
is the task of “knowing thyself”
that daunting
that you would keep it in the cupboard
locked away
that we the children may
not come to know
where you have hidden the sweets

oh soul of all souls
smite me if you must
and let me be
apart from the scorn
of our ways

may our days be days
where the true light
is everlasting

i stubbornly sit here fasting
at the bend of the road
awaiting you
awaiting me
