Woman

Woman is the ovum and the fetus
She ebbs and flows, like Time used to
From Eve to Hannah, from Grace to Delusion...
Woman is the Answer to All

There will come times when Love shall fail
and the green pastures of blessing shall wither and perish
Times, when the race of men will scatter and fall
But, not Today... not Here... not Now!
For now, Time skims afloat in the realm of you... Woman!

I met you in the caves of oblivion
I lingered, while you moaned and suffered in the woods
still, managing to stress your smile over the tree tops
I watched... and learned... how to endure
and persist... and set one's doom free

Free at last... oh Woman of dreams!
Do not abandon me now
For, i still don't know how to suffer... and endure... and persist
while you smile... skimming the surface of the trees
above the hollow of the Earth they called your resting place
Forgive me... as you did back then
when future came to pass...
