Heart And Flesh And Time And Hope

February 8, 2012

the heart is the greatest discovery. The flesh is the greatest divide. And time is a muscle that flexes it’s power to prove it is greater than each one of us. But could we stand together against time?

The heart is stardust, the lines of light that glimmer on the ocean. The flesh is a waning moon. And hope is the hero of all, the greatest achiever. Hope is the easiest forgotten when the world changes shape.

It is long since dusk, and the lights have gone out. We pretend to sleep. We pace the worn floors of our mistakes, running through our daylight hours again and again in our mind.

“How could I have let her go?”

“Why would she leave?”

And there are always questions and there are always answers to them. But the distance between is often larger than the stride of the heart, and we grow weary in the search. Weary, but sleepless. Restless, we watch the night move. Hear the night noises and know the night was designed for our questioning hearts. We are shadows.

And heart and flesh and time and hope are all that are constant in the motion of our lives.
