I wait for your return
for you have gone to battle
your nemesis yet once again
and while waiting, I wonder
if I've really faced my own

in all his fearsome disguises
he still invades my dreams at times
and then I think that perhaps
there is some part of him
that I have yet to integrate

Could it be that I need some part
of what I have rejected in its entirety
in order to be whole?

Perhaps the perseverance
that never allows me
to stop striving for what I believe in
for what I desire to make real

Perhaps the intellectual
that blends so well
with the wisdom of the heart
when both are given
the respect they deserve

Perhaps, too, the physical presence
that cannot be denied
in its intensity
and the power within
its repetitious movement

There seems to be substance
to these ramblings of mine
as if a well-known entity
at last acknowledged
comes to my aid
