Unburdened

 

 
I just breathed in with the universe
A most uncommon moment of clarity;
Fleeting sentence of awareness-on-end
Advantage of Love’s proper ‘motion.
 
A character witness for Time’s crime of passion,
I undergo thousands of millennia, piloted
By these visions now before me, waiting
On the approach of a flightless thought;
 
Past my ego and into uncharted pleasure,
That immense but unyielding desire of love
And its treasures, the gemstones of austerity
Now placed before a vast ocean of device
 
Inside all that I own unto myself – 
Navigation all but lost amidst my own foregoing
And arrive at the station of myself,
Unburdened at last by the arrival of who I am.
 
At last.
