Centering Devotion

January 13th, 2019

Rip the world from me — it is too much of late
Tear from my mind and from my heart the overgrown ivy,
Which has wrapped its stabbing tendrils deep
Take my pride and break it over your knee like so much kindling, Pull the others from my mind like boxers from a cage,
And slow me,
To where my heart beating
Is like a single simple drum,
Pounding away into the infinite silence
