alive (is what you feel)

Inspired by the phrase ‘Oh, do not ask, “What is it?”’ taken from ‘The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock’ by T. S. Eliot.
This now comprises a part of The Linkages Project

I will lead
into
the emotion

let it wash me
until
I feel

until I
am this thing
and
know it

let it free
to know me

I will
transport myself

I will be taken
away

I will
be
as one
saturated top to toe

oh

oh

no no now
do not ask me
what is it

do not say this
is unwise

step
to me
one heartbeat
at a time

step to me
with faith

believe in me
when I tell you
yes

trust me
to show you
the way

and let the feeling
take you
wave
by wave

let your emotions
confirm
what is true

close your eyes

open
your mind

let your imagination
go
let it run wild

laugh
oh laugh
is this not heavenly

laugh
and laugh

this
is being alive

don’t you feel
alive
