Hidden in the Darkness

I rage against your wisdom
pound my fists upon your door
run as far from you as Hades,
drop weeping on death's floor

You chase me like a lover
down the beach of my despair
waiting patiently in shadows
while I scream that you're not here

I berate you for my anguish
cry and rage against your will
but the arms I always wanted
I have found around me still

You hold me in my wildness
and you rock me in the storm
give me in your kindness
Pain that unlocks wisdom's store

This mystery that traps me
in the tentacles of time
breathes out your ageless whisper,
"I am yours and you are mine"

I finally rest in secret
in the shadow of your wing
lay my head upon your heartbeat
and my heart is loosed to sing
