Lyric of the Soul

by Olivia Arieti

The beginning
Of the journey
Finds its end
In the deepest creaks,
Forbidden to light
Where hearts still throb,
And eyes cry,
The only water
In the black throat
Ferries souls
Longing
For the stars
Above
Where shadows float
In expectance,
Indefinite shapes
Of repentance
And ongoing pain,
A fleeing remembrance
Of hope,
Always pining
For the stars
Above
Where all presences
Are blurred
By grace
And flow
In a timeless bliss
Known as
Eternal love.
