Doorway

~ Doorway ~

I have been open enough
to pray for the eyes of God
so that I may see what I’m missing
and fully understand why
it will never be my place to judge
whether moments of experience
take my breath away
or cut it short altogether

I have been closed enough
to pray for death
so that I may end what I am feeling
to cease what I’m seeing
and fully understand why
I will never be completely open
without shattering
an already broken vessel
attempting to hold
the summation of existence
in a single breath

And so I remain
A door half open
held ajar by a singular glass
seen from afar as half empty
resting on the floor
casting its gaze over the threshold
longing to have its intention
travel across time
and breathe easy
.

About SIDEWAYS EIGHT

Being heard, stirred, and perhaps cured by life's many hidden images and the written-spoken word.
