Poem: My Salvation

You are the sanity
That dispels all illusions,
Haunting my mind
With reason and symmetry,
Drenched in fluid fantasy.

My Salvation, My Poetry,
Your voice is the symphony
Of boundless delight,
Your words fill my core
Like perfumed air.

You are the clarity
That shreds the lies
Of cherished delusions,
Unmasking ephemeral chemistry
From the happily ever after.

Without our union
There can be no conclusion,
Without your presence
Life loses its essence,
This is my truth in rendition.

You are the purity
Cleansing me from within,
Purging the false sense of security
In my neatly folded sins,
Anchoring me on humanity’s sublime beauty.

My Salvation, My Light,
Just a spark of you
Ignites my soul,
A moment with you
Transcends my world.

My Sun, My Moon,
My Heaven on Earth,
My Inspiration, My Love,
I am because you are,
Your love is my Salvation.
~ SMT

Author’s Note: I do believe that Love is our salvation. However, I do not believe that it needs to be personified in an individual. Because it is not someone else’s love which will redeem us or complete us ultimately. It is our love for ourselves. We have to start by loving ourselves in the right way. Learn how to give yourself boundless love, patience and compassion. Above all, be gentle with yourself.

Then we can truly begin loving others in a way that does not harm, and appreciate the power of love.

The path to healing ourselves and the world is through love. This is our real salvation. 

This poem is dedicated to all those people who have shown or taught us what it means to love selflessly. May they continue to shine the light into our world, reminding us all that we are beautiful, vulnerable but magnificent as we are.

Happy Loving, my darling ones! 

Being Afraid Is Human, But Staying Afraid Is A Choice.
