so far away

so far, my God , so far away,
your closeness recedes from yesterday.
but, alas, as much as I feel spurned,
I am certain, now, my back is turned.

sincerity

Edgar Degas

Through a glass
darkly,
it seems –
I seek clarity
of those innermost
things.
If truth lies
awake
on the hem of
inner places
sincere,
waiting to divulge
and alight on my
outer being,
then I pray
for sincerity
for peace so
serene.
