You Are Like A Well - Poem by john o'connell

You are like a well
of fresh water
in a desert
of desolation.

You are like
a warm flame
in the cold night
of dark nihilism.

You are as
a compass
in a directionless
universe.

You are as
a revealing flare
in a sea of distress.

You are as
sense
in an ocean
of absurdity.

You are like
a purpose
behind apparent
chaos.

You are like
an answer to
a long list
of supplications.

You are like
a surefooted guide
through the muddles
realms of space and time.

You are like a lover
who gives his all
in anticipation
of nothing.

You are as a cool
dawn breeze
after a feverish
night.

You are as
a shining star
in the essence
of our beings.

You are like
the finest cut
diamond that sparkles
in our souls.

You are like
the best of wines
that brings solace
to our hearts.
