Cave of the Mind

The rock cave of Mind 
echoes dangerous duets;
swirling dark waters
threaten to drown out desire.

She knows she doesn't belong here,
trapped by worldly mimicry.

In the distance, Love beckons,
the stars come out to play
in folds of inky blue.
Moonlight sends armies of delight
to reason with misty shadows.
But Mind is the treacherous Ruler of this Kingdom,
mocking imagination and free spirit.

Broken, heart sheds hope.
Soul seeps through her eyes
to be freed of precious delusion.
