there's an emptiness i will not look at again, a hidden hole i will not fall into this time. day dissolves into night, turns into weeks & months. all softens & shifts in the blue melting distance & i cling to You now. i cannot do this alone. but with You it can finally be accomplished. You can do all that i am unable to do. just be here with me & keep me company while this great transformation rages in us all.
i wrap you in these words when the cold wind bites through your mask when the rags you wear fall apart when your dark secrets are exposed i wrap you in these words om namah shivaya i rub these words into your skin like rose-scented lotus oil like a warm healing unguent like a gentle angel's touch i rub these words into your skin om namah shivaya i feed these words to you in the emptiness of hunger in the solitude of your night in the depths of your abstraction i feed these words to you om namah shivaya i shine these words into you like sunlight into your shadows like moonlight upon your ocean like the warmth that pulls sprout from seed i shine these words into you om namah shivaya i plant these words in your soul into the nameless they go plunging into the subtle shifting yearning into the moist readiness of now i plant these words in your soul om namah shivaya
