Twenty-Six Lifetimes

I’ve been here before
I am Today
Adorned with all my yesterdays
Twenty-six lifetimes poised before you
Like fine wine, mellowed with time
I’ve explored distant galaxies
Paved eccentric paths
Conceived ideas unborn to man
Revived my essence
Unscathed, I proffer knowledge of a thousand feasts                                         
You hunger but refuse to eat                                                                                     
Spill blood of a thousand broken hearts                                                                          
You thirst for love yet will not drink                                                                                           
I’ve tasted your unborn                                                                                                                     
Bathed in spoils of your passion
Danced in rhythm with your heart
Beating in…
And out…
Of time with mine
Replete with seed of your lust
Yet starved because you leave me empty
I am Now
Eden’s harvest
Ripe
Waiting
Longing
For one soul
Worthy of these twenty-six lifetimes poised before you
