Truth and I at Teatime

Poem by Eve Love

I invited Truth in

I invited Truth in

And Truth filled my whole house

Slowly and silently

We sipped a hot tea …

~

I asked:

What is the meaning of life?

Truth answered:

Whatever you want it to be

~

I asked:

Why am I alive?

Truth softly replied:

To learn the truth

~

I then asked:

How did life begin?

Truth winked mysteriously:

If the world was birthed in a Word

Imagine the Thought that conceived it

~

I sat back dumbfounded

Digesting Truth’s answers

When Truth questioned suddenly:

Why are you dumbfounded?

You invited me in -

To select the ability to question

Is to welcome the truth

~

Astounded I asked:

You are so beautiful, open, freeing

Why do so many people lie?

Truth smiled:

Because I have no agenda

~

Then I asked a secret question

The answer to which I secretly denied

Before Truth could utter a word

A sharp pain entered my heart

I yelled: Stop! I don’t want to know

Truth waited awhile

Until I could catch my breath

Back to poise and full logic

We continued our conversation

Truth whispered:

Because you already do

~

Perplexed even further

I allowed Truth to envelop me

I asked:

Where do you come from?

Truth closed the eyes in joy:

The same place as you

(Divinity echoed)

~

We sat quietly for a while

Until silence became Light

The liberty of which most deny

I knew I found a friend I have been seeking my entire life

(I think I’m dreaming — I feel too good)

Without a sound Truth replied

Keep dreaming blessed child

For you are awake

~

As the night fell in and candlelight was dimming

I asked:

Will you stay with me?

Truth hugged me:

Forever and ever

~
