Incense and Patchouli

An insight to her life
The strange flight she’s taking
A familiar soul appears at her wing
Nudging her upward
When darkness would pull her down

He quoted a line, innocent enough
From a song she’s carried always within
A direct reflection of the way he sees her
And her soul cried out; a warrior’s scream

Knowing in that instant
Beyond all doubt and reason
He was the hunter she’d always seen
Lurking alone in the shadows of her dreams

Volumes of verse and prophetic poetry
Endless years of trying and seeking
Desperate measures in simply filling
This void of emptiness
That forever has lingered

Two paths combine and blend into one
One beautiful and perfect whole
Restless souls mirrored in complexity
Intertwine and mesh in the light
