"The Writings Of Mongsee"
by Marcia Wickes
 

Truth

I could not see the truth
Til I was stripped and spread and
Nailed to its splintered cross,
Flung against the ravening sky,
Screaming into the dawn of reality...............

I could not see the truth
Til I was staked and burned
In lonely torment,
With the fires of inevitability
Snaking up my vulnerable flesh........

I could not see the truth
Til I was pinned beneath it,
Raped and shrieking as my soul was
Pinioned, my heart breaking with the sound
Of abrasive laughter in the dark of hope............

I could not see the truth
Til it saw me and came stalking my 
Innocent life......
I could not see the truth.
I could not see the truth.
