On a starless night..


On a starless night,
many years ago,
you asked me to give up
my illusion of control.
I struggled, I wept,
I bowed in submission. Now,
many starless nights later,
you ask me to surrender
all illusion of self
separate from you.
I struggle, I weep,
I place my heart,
pierced and purified
many times over,
on the altar of Love,
enchanted and seduced by
the promise and persistence
of your song.
