The Spirit is willing but the ......

the spirit is willing but the.....



Oh..that I could break free
of fleshly bonds
and wing my way
across the skies
that gray your world
to touch you
with a healing balm
that calms
you darkest hours
to hold you
in the cradle
of my understanding
and warmth
to join with you
sharing your pain
melting it into something
worth cherishing
but life has chains
that bind us
to its choices
thus the spirit
can only dream
in order to fully blossom
it is why I write poems
to offer words
so meaningful
that our spirits
can still embrace
between the lines.

Wow this speaks volumes to me. There is a tangible union between writer and reader. I have felt the embrace of writers and poets here on hubpages. A connection felt, different but no less powerful than someone laying their hand upon mine. Thank you for this one. Truly. :)
