A Veil of Arcane

A Veil of Arcane

It is yet to be determined 
If her heart made it out alive
The contours of her mouth 
Support a pout, where pain derives
So she avoids direct eye contact
Shuffles through faceless crowds
The memories of love’s torture
Scream at her too loud

Who can she trust to run to?
She seeks an outstretched hand
She’s as fragile as a glass globe
With scattered thoughts like wind-blown sand
Waiting, wishing, and wanting 
For what she does not know 
Perhaps fate’s forgiving favor 
Along with love’s prolific show
 
The answers remain elusive
The night sky hides them in the stars
She considers the unknown scary
The implication of more scars
And so she cries out for God’s mercy 
To protect her from further pain
The hurt in her heart needs discerning
Resolution wears a veil of arcane

Hi Marion.  Thank you.  I am sure you can relate.  I find the unknown to be a very scary place....Sometimes life is unpredictable and we cannot be in control....and the mystery of the future can be torturous.  I am glad you have overcome in your life and can leave things in the past that hurt.  Very inspiring. ;) xo Love n Hugs

YOU, feel. YOU, sense.
What is vital, to the passions of the heart.
You live and learn.....in " celebratory " ways, to spread, THE TRUTH and, THE LIGHT.
Your giving, and, supporting intent stretches boundaries. For, ample reward.
Satisfying harmony of purpose, and creative bent, lead you on a mission.
To be, what you want, you crave perception. You, yearn to stand for, and, represent MORE.
Loving ways dictate your ambition. And, your SHARING approaches. 
TO BE ADMIRED.

Hi Richard..Thank you.  :)  Your commentary reads like a very perceptive psychic reader.  I do think I am at that point in my life where I am seeking a harmonious purpose and on a creativity mission with my writing and art.  I want to be what God leads me to be.  It is very kind that you say my loving ways dictate my ambition....I do focus all my attention on what love motivates me in life to do.  Bless you.  Love n Hugs, xo ;)
