Down on my Knees

It was

down on my knees

where I found peace

I found the pleasure of surrender

I found the joy of powerless

I found the peace of submission

of myself not just to you

but to the greater than I

to the cosmos

to the life force that streams

through me

 

It was

down on my knees

where I found the strength

to hold on

to live on

to carry on

in spite of the past

despite the present

forever and unconditionally

loving the future

to be more

 

It was

down on my knees

where I learned the weight

of a collar

the sting of a flogger

and the joy of ever holler

scream

and incomprehensible thing

that escaped my lips

the kinetic energy

the feel of your finger tips

the synergy of our souls

into becoming one

 

It was

down on my knees

where I mended pieces

of my soul

previously disjointed

shards of my heart

sharp as glass

needing to be mended by your hands

needed to be caressed

to pick up the mess

that was me

 

It was

down on my knees

where I found

peace

strength

and the will to continue on

in this journey.
