Paradise I have seen

A yawning gulf
between my vision
and reality.
Between a place
to love, and the
spawning gravels.
I want to be simply myself,
with some sharp edges.
Not your flames,
fed on myth,
indifference and apathy.
Into a promise, I am walking it.
A path of zen-groomed sand.
Towards that sea-lit sky.
