What Stories color your tapestry?

To you…
When we encounter,
a stranger on a road,
What is interesting
Is not
how we perceive and play
Our personalities.
It is what beats beneath our masks.

Is it fast or slow?
How the longing inside,
melts our hearts,
How prepare are we
to surrender to unknown
And let unshaped emotions
change us to someone else,
To take another path,
to serve another cause,
to let go of our desires.

Could we trust the world
as it is,
stay in peace,
when alchemy force
remakes, reshapes us,
inside out,
to end our seeking,
To begin our lives.

To live the breadth of life
and not merely the depth.
To follow the whims and larks
that each day brings,
To smile and
relish the adventure,
the opportunities
that exists in non existence
at all times,
ready to born.

I want to know,
what stories color your tapestry?
Where your longing takes you,
to teach you
How to find new paths and ways
to see and be,
A different you.

I want to know,
how many times
you abandoned your soul
for the sake of acceptance and praise
of the audience of your life.

Who did you truly betray
when you turned away from love
and gave into your fears,
to calculate
the risk of losing your heart.

What did you use
to fulfill the empty hole
within your heart,
daydreams or drugs,
blames, horrors or lonliness.

How successful you think you are,
in exploring yourself,
answering your call,
Cultivating love.
How many times you fell
on the hard ground,
helpless and lost
wished for your death,
to refuse the wake up call.

How many times
grace had lifted you up,
put you back
on the warm sand,
welcoming shores of earth,
covered in shimmiring faith.

I am asking you,
To look into my eyes,
A stranger on a road,
what you see or hear
Is not mine,
It is the longing
within your own heart,
Passion to be met
By another,
To be burnt in flames
embraced totally and completely by love,
and face all consequences
on your path to union,
with-in and with-out.

Deeper into
the centre of the longing,
Where nothing is left,
All burnt in flames of love
Where the stranger is gone,
The mirror is broken,
the outside world is disappeared.

Then you hear the music,
freedom to move and be who you are.
Blow kisses,
Eat love.

Everyday is an adventure,
A chance to meet a new you
Laugh and love
And enjoy a tender touch.
I look into your eyes
And meet myself.

My heart longs,
and my love grows,
for you,
for myself,
for all creation.

what say you?
