Deepest of the Deep


Poem by Carlos Alvarado

Never to have happened
Nor celebrated
Into the abyss
Absent of light
But a distant glow
—I was
Deepest of the deep

Passion buried within
My heart
Afraid to be touched
And divulge a lie
Silent darkness
—I am
Deepest of the deep

Courage to confront
Its fervent grip
Light without shadow
A soul is bared
Blissfully exposed
—I know
Deepest of the deep

Emptiness fulfilled
Every heartbeat
Pours joy
Into the void
Sharing my riches
—Freed of
Deepest of the deep
