Being possessed we know to seek it
the spirit burning, yearning to guide
to be heard, desiring to integrate
to be one, dogs bark, truck roars
music blares, T.V. stares, disturbed
interrupted, time flees, how to catch
some silence, knell in darkness
before your chair, thoughts jump
worries pester, edges twist
wounds fester, calculations run
social networks share and chatter
tangled we struggle to be free
find a sacred space, our closet
solemn receptacle of devotion
separated from every distraction.
