Until It Sleeps - Poem by Jennie Renee Sparrow
I listened to the voices of the seas, I felt the breeze of the night air softly caress my olive skin. I closed my eyes and felt the rhythm of the waves as they raced across the clear turquoise waters. My heart became free and I was at complete peace. I felt as though my soul was being lifted to the sky. I imagined escaping to the world I knew among the moon. Just as I could sense the stars around me, I listened to my own heartbeat as the sound beat like a drum with the ocean. The warm glow of the moon touched my face and I felt the warmth within my soul. It was as if I was dreaming. No longer being restricted by mind or my body, my soul was now its own being. My heart was pure and I belonged to the essence within my own realm. At last I knew its full beauty. Even if it was just a glimpse, I knew it to be all of myself that I had dedicated to it. It was the familiarity that I was convinced of. This was now proven to me, upon no further conviction, that what I thought I knew existed; did indeed. It was pure, it was real, and most of all it was true! For those few moments of ecstasy, I became part of the moon. The moon continued to hold me, refusing to let me go. So I held on to that very moment the longest that I could! But I knew that the time of my return from my journey has not come. My Legends of Legacies as Nevera have yet to be written. This will be forever recorded as the first time I have written of it. This diary of mine will tell the stories that I will know throughout my life. One day this book will be shared by those that continue to believe in it, and have faith upon me. Only then shall I rise again. Mark this day as: 8 Junius 883 B.C. As this day reveals that the Summer Solstice keeps its promise, that when the human heart in Nevera dies; the Immortal soul within Nevera lives. And I, Nevera shall never die!
