Andy Virgil Illustrator Extraordinaire!


By Tessa Saks


I am lost in this sea

Of frozen time

Crippled by emptiness of

Distant skies

I look to you for answers

I look to you for truth


A murmur

A whisper

I wait with heavy patience

Distilled by a night filled

With brilliance

Rising before you



Forgive me

Colors of sorrow remain

To haunt faded desires

A secret stain

Endlessly resurfacing

Memories bitter and stale

Soured by life

Soured by love

Purify my life

Purify my love

Cleanse the discontent

From the hollows

Of my damaged soul

I wait for redemption

Quiet in the stir of morning

I wait

I want to be new

A sterile heart

And chaste mind

Forgive me

Cleanse me

Purify the unknown depth

Of despair and longing

I wait

I wait for you

Only you
