The Witness

When You move into life fully
It becomes a paradox
You can stand in Yourself
And be in great pain and joy at the same time
Walking among people
Feeling disconnected and beautifully held
It all changes and stays the same
As You slow down
Things begin to move quicker
Moments become lifetimes
Life with it, much thicker
The now can become more holy
While experiencing hell
Desire moves within longing
Longing dissolves with time
Nothing is sacred
But all so ravishingly beautiful to witness
It might be
That I’m only the silence
Between the moments
