Mystery Deep

“At the center of your being you have the answer.
You know who you are and you know what you want”
~ Rumi

I feel I am going backwards
Way back
Before I was

All knowledge gained
I care no longer about
I am empty like a child

I trust like a child
I love like a child
I weep like a child

Call it ignorant
Call it stupidity
Your names mean nothing

I love that which I cannot see
I trust that which I cannot feel
I weep and I don’t know why
I cry sweet tears of joy

Joy that my heart has returned
Soft, sensitive like it was
I do not cover it with pride
I leave it open for all

I’d rather it be bruised and broken
Then hollow and dead
This longing is ancient and great
A returning; a revealing

A mystical space
A crystal face
The Holy Trinity

Oh, I don’t know
But I feel I am going backwards
Back home

Mystery deep
I feel the primordial drum beat
Beating in my heart

I am like a child
