Away, My Comforting Knave

Thereís a dark knight trying to court me
I canít trust him or see his face
Concealed behind fortress of armor
Of his eyes, there isnít a trace

He promised to soothe me in slumber
I feel I could sleep the day through
I drift in a world of unknowing
In a sea of silence and blue

He stands bold, at loving attention
With his war ax drawn at his side
Preventing all thoughts that could harm me
Of things I have loved that have died

And for now Ė this season Ė Iím resting
Beneath eye of warm, loving care
Curled up in a ball of itís safe here
Far away from the lionís lair

Where the lion knows how to love me
And claims he may do it again
Some day it will be more convenient
Weíll return to the world of Zen

But I dream of a world unfolding
Where Zen doesnít have to be sought
But a place Iím already living
A land he can visit, or not

So I see the season is changing
Thereís light peering into my cave
ďNow, away, my shadowed companion --
My seductive, comforting knave!Ē

Here, I share, with stark honesty, my life.

I was trying to remember how many stages there are to grief while wondering about whether it applies to lost love .. why not? This has an elegant feel to it while staying in contact with the emotion in a poetic sense .. that's not easy to do .. ever.
