I Need

What is it that
I truly need tonight
beyond what culture
teaches me is right?

I need to know
that love will flow
unhindered by the ties that bound
what culture always found to be
and the echoes of eternity
speak to me tonight
in form of starlight burning bright

within this night of deep expression
and ever will our culture's expectations
plague the moods that thus arise
yet within the heart, so wise

lie feelings of the love that heals
beyond the judgements that appeal
to the intelectual mind
and within this night I find

the will to love again
as the powers-that-be now send
a sweet and startling inspiration
that sends me beyond man's creation

into the realms of inspiration
defying e'en imagination
revealing all I really need
implanting yet another seed
of love
