Collaboration of Contrasts

Truth does not change
Earth surrenders each season
Night fills the hollow of deepening blue
I cannot arrange
Love’s tempestuous reason
Longing still follows the having of you

The more that I love you
The deeper I hunger
The deeper I hunger the fuller I love
Mysterious paradox
Driving me onward
Searching for something I know nothing of

Out in the shadows
The poplar trees shiver
Here in the quiet of autumn’s midnight
Symmetrical contrasts
Collaborate, quiver
In bittersweet torment and tender delight
