A perpetrator


Willing I went at first,

Hoping for dreams and completion.

Fast friends,

Traveling mountains of life,

We swam the current, washed the past,

And only saw the future,

Happy lovers loving all

With naive eyes wide open.

Daylight waning,

Grass turned black

And winter was on the water.

Suddenly I felt the ice.

I gazed to the lover who was with me

Discovering only death,

His stagnate presence so scarcely noticed

as I held his bony hand in mine.

While we waltzed through gold-filled years,

His seductive lies became me,

Learning too late meretricious love

That beguiled me year to year.

In releasing frozen clutches,

Falling mercilessly down,

Another hand has rescued me,

Giving strength to what remains.

It raised my weary eyes,

No longer vision blurred with pain,

But clearer now and solely filled

With the good Lord’s love and hope.
