Remembering our oneness

Fragile Veil

by Writingfundimension

My eyes are closed to you
Blinding me to answers I seek
of why love weakens...
a truth to which I'm beholden.
The perception of inadequacy
in you,
in me,
Serves disfigured egos,
embracing a disordered wholeness
... the sum of which I've learned in
loving here before.
Still, upward thrusting notes
of a haunting song of wholeness,
bid me offer forgiveness to this world
of brother against brother...
opening me to the knowledge that I suffer
while you are apart from me.
