Here To Rescue You

I caught you drifting.
In the midst of dark shadows,
There...
Claiming fear.
With a hope,
More comes along.

I am not surprised,
My eyes have been opened wide.
And with hindsight in view...
Sifting through wishes incomplete.
One stays with me,
To make come true!
I am here,
To rescue you!

Like me you have been your own victim.
Closed within by a bitterness,
Sitting feeling an emptiness...
You wish was not hidden so well.
It isn't!
I realized that when I visited,
My own inhabitions.

Let them go.
The teachings you have come to know.
To keep you fooled,
In desperate yearning.
Those lessons I knew and learned then well,
Too.
I am here to rescue you!

Take my hand I once kept disguised.
With a wish not to be touched or be held.
Celebrating misery.
In a hell I brought upon myself.
And knew too well.

Yes,
I caught you drifting.
In the midst of dark shadows,
There...
Claiming fear.
With a hope,
More comes along.
No...
I am not surprised,
My eyes have been opened wide.
And with hindsight in view...
Sifting through wishes incomplete.
One stays with me,
To make come true!
I am here,
To rescue you!

I am glad my heart persisted.
And so glad am I,
Time permitted this!
Fight together we will.
To undo the chains of your despair.
I had been there.
Isolated in my own awareness.

Take my hand I once kept disguised.
With a wish not to be touched or be held.
Celebrating misery.
In a hell I brought upon myself.
And knew too well.

Claiming fear.
With a hope,
More comes along.
I did that too!
I am here,
To rescue you!
Together we belong.
We do.
We do!
