HALO OF REFUGE

Footsteps...
My footsteps...
Running in the dark...
Running... forever..

Forever,
And not stopping
For anyone...
Not even you.

I constantly pass you,
While running in circles,
In this eternal darkness,
That you seem to embrace.

And yet, at the same time,
You are immune to its influencing sorrow
And emit a faint glow - a warmth,
From the overwhelming cold.

At the corner of my eye,
I gaze at you intently,
As my feet urge me to continue,
Betraying my feeling of longing.

Periodically,
Your isolating aura grows,
Catching the attention,
Of my hopeful eyes.

In hopes that I may, finally,
Brake free from deception,
And run to you and into your arms-
Into your strong and comforting embrace.

To be by you side...
To be there for you,
And you for me...
Hand in hand, forevermore.

I pray that soon, My Love,
I may be with you,
In your halo of light and purity,
And under your unwavering love and protection.

Well.. ... please review/ leave comments. Oh.. and as in all poetry, there
are many different ways of interpreting things. So I would love to hear
everyone's point of view! No wrong answers of course.. This is poetry for
crying out loud... haha.. but I was originally going to call it 'Waiting
For You'.
