Naked Reality

Hopefulness
And
Hopelessness
Are two sacred
bridges
Spun by the same
Thread of
Mind

Follow one to taste
The Truth
Of Infinite Potential
Follow one to taste
The Truth
Of Radical Surrender
Weave them together
While simultaneously
Unraveling both
And taste
Naked Reality

More exquisitely delicious
And
Tragically plain
Than anything the
Thread of mind
Could ever spin

The Beloved is
A Trickster
Kissing you with
One eye
Closed

One hand
Caressing your
Face
One hand a
Knife
In your back

How much
Love
Can you take?
