03/16/2007 – what do you do – (c)

what do you do,
when you’ve poured out your soul,
when you’ve bled out your feelings,
when you’ve let flow forth from
the depths of your soul

and then
bared,
vulnerable to the world,
wait
timeless
waiting

it was you who pulled
such thoughts into being
and from being
out into the world

as issued from these lips
as you heard them form
these simple words
of complex emotions
churned
by your very existance

and then
bared,
vulnerable to the world,
i wait
timeless
waiting

but what do i wait for,
when i’m open to you
far moreso than is wise
and having said things
that are questioned
as to source
and soundness of reality

but still
bared,
vulnerable to the world,
i wait
timeless
waiting

for you to respond,
to end this suffering
to fill this emptiness
to feed this hunger
to lift this soul

and by your thoughts
made whole
by your words
said aloud

you share with me
such vulnerable secrets
silently, breathlessly
over miles and time
from your lips to mine
the reaction to me
so that finally i see

this joy is real
regardless of you
for your being
simply is enough
being simply
there and here
you make me smile

and even if
those thoughts of yours
hidden behind
those many masks
turn out to be
so different from mine
the world will still spin
and i’ll fall again
but not apart
i’m stronger than that
but for another
whose heart beats
the echo to mine

but just in case
those thoughts of yours
hidden behind
those many masks
turn out to be
not so different from mine
the world will spin on
and then i will fall
into this storm
and stronger these thoughts
but for each other
whose hearts beat
and echo through time
