What I Came For - Poem by Matthew Roeser

I came to capture the moment
When glass fractured
at the instant of the stones impact
When the first snowflake touched your tongue
When fist first met bone 
And the pavement came crashing hard
When desire first yielded to desire 
And flesh met flesh
When the first tear fell
'Cause you found the rumor true
When the mirror cry escaped at last
Wed to glory, joy and pain
When you witnessed the first step
When temptation first offered itself to deliverance
And discovery met a crack that birthed a demon
I came so that I may know
Of blood and anguish
Of betrayal and hate
Ecstasy and contentment
Angels and devils
Hail and fire
And lines that can not be but are crossed
I came for it all
To be it all
To live it all and I will not
Settle for anything less.
That is what I came for.
