A Mystic Journey

By Matthew Smith



[font=Tahoma, sans-serif]My inner man is stirred to a vision
[/font]

[font=Tahoma, sans-serif]off the coast 
of my mind's eye [/font]

[font=Tahoma, sans-serif]I awake to a mystery,[/font]
[font=Tahoma, sans-serif]walking along a majestic sea of crystal glass 
a dolphin leaping out of the blue [/font]

[font=Tahoma, sans-serif]a white gloved hand
beckons me,
turns me into a wide speckled eyed wanderer
a grand spiral staircase coming forth
Heaven-sent
the hand points and turns as if a clock [/font]

[font=Tahoma, sans-serif]“Ascend,” it says.
I yield and obey
the gloved hand slowly nudging me,
guiding me ever gently upwards[/font]


[font=Tahoma, sans-serif]where am I going?
[/font]

[font=Tahoma, sans-serif]The steps bleed together,[/font]
[font=Tahoma, sans-serif]My legs growing tired.
I am nearly faint of heart now,
gasping
one final step and I'm out of breath [/font]

[font=Tahoma, sans-serif] [/font]
[font=Tahoma, sans-serif]- A doorway 
I collapse against the wood
breathing
instinctively, my hand wanders the keyhole[/font]




·[font=Times New Roman]      [/font]A peek inside reveals an entire universe
[font=Tahoma, sans-serif] [/font]
[font=Tahoma, sans-serif]I look to the hand, but there is no response.
my heart is beating in my chest wildly
observing, I wonder? 
I place my wet, sweaty fingers into the hole,
fingering for a moment,
searching.[/font]

·[font=Times New Roman]      [/font]

[font=Tahoma, sans-serif]yes. there it is. a latch.

I grab ahold and pull the trigger,[/font]

[font=Tahoma, sans-serif]my moist, hot hands dripping
and with a click, a release,
the door is ajar now, revealing glowing light
Entering, the hand becomes a dove 
She flys away, leaving a swirl of colors behind her
She says, "I am spirit and I am breath of your flesh. I give you permission to dwell in both universes.” [/font]

[font=Tahoma, sans-serif] [/font]
[font=Tahoma, sans-serif]I fall down as I see colors I've never seen before [/font]
[font=Tahoma, sans-serif]A masterpiece of pink opening up like a woman's vagina[/font]
[font=Tahoma, sans-serif]Or breasts
A collapsing feeling fills my chest
I ache with love
my tears flowing
Swirls of purple effervescence all about
Spiraling, dancing around me
I have become Snow White, [/font]

[font=Tahoma, sans-serif]graced by the song of blue birds 
perching on my shoulder
a brown-grey rabbit at my feet 
I welcome each strange creature,
seeing bursts of yellowish light
firecrackers filling me with a red glow[/font]

[font=Tahoma, sans-serif]It dawns on me: this is the color of love
- Love unknown is now known.  [/font]

[font=Tahoma, sans-serif]Am I dead? [/font]
  • [font=Tahoma, sans-serif]Nevermind. I am at peace now. It is complete. [/font]
Why did you make the font so big? I think size 12, times new roman would be suitable.
