I’ve Not Been In Here


God forgive me I do not

believe I have been here.

The paint is so unfamiliar

though I’ve seen it for years.

The bed it is elevated high

off of the floor that I crawl

across the carpet my feet

do not touch ground at all.

The light that I’ve read to

is a different color since I

last saw you around in here.

God please take these eyes.

Softer is the air in the room

that I read your musings in.

I am changed forever by the

gentle words I found in them.

You are a figment I imagine

you as you write words gazing

at your creation before you

finish to make things amazing.

What is this tapestry of gold

that grabs to take such control

of my desire for stories told

in what you bring for my soul.

Turning chapter to chapter

inside there comes laughter

covering all my little disasters

making me happily ever after.

Nothing is as it is usually now

since when first I figured how

your elegant dialogue shrouds

torrential rain in dark clouds.

I can feel your eyes no disguise

you could ever make could hide

the weeping sun you can provide

to the darkest corner you supply.

God forgive me I do not

believe I have been in here.

The darkness it disappears

after being here for years.
