Primal

Orb of orange hung blue in heavens

Eye peeking through velvet curtain

Round as rock this rock does orbit

Showing only one of its two faces

I stare transfixed amidst the mist

Wishing with my heart exposed

Pleading to the gods above

My secrets only they will know

And you I hear in the owl’s call

The midnight overseer

Of all the dreamers’ dreams

Of all the dark creatures’ fears

Saying you see me in the light

In silver tinged sight

Standing naked and primal

Arms outstretched to the sky

The wild She in all her skin

Shameless in her shadow

That shows no clothes

No chains, no rings, nor claims

But a compass for a heart

That follows the moon in dark

Knowing it will lead me back to you
