In The Dark Cave

Every book a god has ever written
of Secrets which were never spoken
is a Gift to me, handed down for free.
Their Words broke my chains free.

I once ventured into the Cave I feared.
As Death approached, my end neared.
I found the Monster from whom I’d hid.
And, hugged her like I never did.

The gods told me that there was treasure
which no mortal had dreamed of ever.
And, when I ventured into the Cave too,
I found not gold, I found you!

~Pramodh Iyer, a Poet at Ω The Equilibrium Of Life Ω
