Another Parting

as he turns and walks away
she feels him
tugging at her heart
as if somehow
he might take it with him

and sometimes it seems
that he does

and the longer he remains away
the greater the pain
as invisible cords
reach closer and closer
to the breaking point

will the weave
of subtle emotional bonds
withstand the pressure…?

or finally unravel
releasing the pain
of so many such partings

will they ever become aware
of the part they play
or the prison they create?

as layer by layer
dependent emotional patterns
enter more and more into reality

while the web of love
once finely spun
becomes the chain that binds

or could it be
that they might see
these patterns formed of pain

and reach into eternity
to guide the hand that weaves
the patterns beyond mind's belief
back to the source of everything

that speaks of love and life within
the galaxies that spin
beyond the mortal sphere of mind
to become a love divine
