The Light That Lies Beyond

In trappings and in entrapment

In fate’s labyrinths

In dire webs and in silky cobwebs

In sodden fogs and in floating mists

In the clouded mind and the stitched eyelid

You will get hopelessly lost, only to be found

By a flash of divine light

Masquerading in the human form

A compass pointing to your only north

Where true love awaits 

On a bed of roses in the absence of thorns

Where all doubt and all nuances will disappear

To the aura of her truth
