A Secret Place - Poem by John Ackerman

alone
in the silence of my thoughts
pitter patter of soft sandal feet
a candle lit in the corner of my room
thinking
time well spent in thought
sullen brevity
my soul permeates sweet humble affection
adoration


whispers
thr ough the vortex
the peace that passes understanding
beauty in sullen brevity
all of life seems to be a mystery
the knocking of the door
think back
to a time well spent in thought
captivated by love
love is the vibrant essence of my inner existence
shun the resistance in every circumstance

we shall meet here daily
to ponder are togetherness
nestled in the very fabric of our existence
the secret place
away from the hustle and bustle
shadows block the space
a beacon of light to a hurting world in need of love
those memories
the moments lived out in twilight
aura

a challenge to be set free is a question of time
still dig much deeper then ever before
the touch of the hand that captivated a smile
the vast light of illumination
to bask in the vast expanse between space & time
a real reason to believe
a face to shine
smile
the days end
or has it just begun
we are in search of something
but in heaven's name what?
