Counting From Zero… Or Past Four Ninety One…

Something sacred
This way
Swings

Mastery
And
Mystery
And
Every now-sweet thing's

Balance in the slaking
Of a broken-heart
A hope-shard shaking

Unhinged
Within my chest.
As if the core of me was crashing, 
Breaking

On the shore
Of some failed future's quest

While running
On answers
Before questions
Fell

My mind
Caught up
With the rest 

I'm in the middle of building
The best
A fetter

That bitter life I'd always wanted
To say I'd rejected for something better

Lest... 

See, I read Tolkien's Silmarillion
And that first chapter still haunts my waking dreams
And these heady impulses by which they're built and broken
And...
Dare I hope
In God again
Redeemed?
