The Goddess
(May 7,2010)

These dark waves have rolled over
My face before
I have been here before
Emusled in these rushing waters
The night is deep and black and I
Think I should be feeling lost but I
Feel like I’m here again
In the dark of night
In these black waters
Rolling with the ocean’s current
Being too familiar I am not lost
But being too far away I am
Afraid to be lost
And is this a place I’ve come from?
From the midnight waters was I born?
And is this a place I return to
When my soul remembers?
These waves they know me too well
This current pulsates
My bloodstream
The rush in my ears

From somewhere I have always known

  7. "Music/From somewhere I have always known." That's beautiful. What a haunting poem-a place both familiar and unfamiliar. A dark place, where nonetheless one feels strangely at home.
