Gossamer Flame

Searching through the cold and dark
Finding rocks and unexpected pitfalls
Grappling to find handholds and footholds
Falling and rising and then falling yet again.

Eventually the chasm opens wider
Cavernous echoes of victims still pleading
Questing for something they know not the source of
Forever lost in the mists of their own minds

When all is seemingly intangible and lost
Unbidden tears come angling down
As they fall a glimmer of light does flicker
A tiny flame burns hanging by gossamer threads

That flame lies within so searching is fruitless
Looking with your eyes will render your failure
Search with your heart through your dreams on the inside
And soon you will find that love therein lies.
