The Abyss of the Soul

“The truest solitude is not something outside you, it is an abyss opening up in the center of your own soul.” Thomas Merton

When night rushes in
and tightly presses
my fading eyes
and even the faithful wind

with breathless prayer
will I call you.

Your strong hand
will catch me as I fall
beyond my failures
beyond the
of my will,

down to my truest solitude
to the abyss
of the soul.
