Sinew Paid My Due

A bracing Pinnacle;
giving all, -yet none by stalling-
One Sinew shall uphold:
prevent this tree from ever falling,
or making secrets told.

This tree will timely fall, alas a Bidden scope!
Peaking; one prolific, -straining from all hope-

Revolve thy eyes to see -a broken tempest past-
Changed, a restored order.
With knowing eyes, it cannot last.

Even the most blind could see,
the seeds -so obvious- to view.
I plant them to be found, Revered,
only found by you...

Repel the harmful demons,
or diminish from my view.
Why reroute harmful glances,
to sunder none not due?

No force provisions true blockades of dreams.
The strongest; love can tare!
Every branch held holds your name, Revered...
The leaves, your face and hair.

Now safe Eternal, I can sleep!
Knowing your eyes above, and strength beneath.
Perplexity fogs this tree, turns a world askew.
Hibernating my life, 'till again with you.
