& i lost u
i lost someone, my love
someone who's greater than the stars above
someone who I need
someone who don't let my heart bleed...
i have lost my way. my poor soul, an empty
abyss. love is an incomprehensible
mystery; my world, dimly sensed, is not much
more than a faint, disintegrating shadow.
i saw u, my love, transfigured, bathed in the
light of attraction. u whom i blithely picked
to love thru means unconscious & unknown.
i saw yr transcendence & shrank back; could not
stand the glory & majesty of u -- had
to bring u down to planes of tribal custom
where i might understand u… & I lost u.
