So Intense

Sometimes I see so clearly
when I finally wake up
to hear the voice inside
that is my very soul

and I wonder then
where my mind has been
for it was lost within
some other place and time

as the cacophony
of others' blind emotions
entered and drowned out
the voice of truth

I ponder and I query
for still it makes no sense
that feelings so intense
should flow through me

and I wonder if the day will come
when I might see
a light at the end
of all this darkness
that you sent to me

just then, I spy a light
a flickering flame
and step by step
I follow
as it leads me home again . . .
