Knowing – In the Biblical Sense

Rated RAnd God said: “It is not good that you are alone.
Come, be joined together.”

And so after all this time
Of wandering and wondering,
Of searching and exploring,
Of hoping and failing,
They find each other

At first they are hesitant –
Too much to lose,
Too much to gain –
But as they gaze into each other’s soul
Fixated on the other’s heart
They remember, in all their parts,
How, at the beginning of time,
When they were but a thought,
A singularity of the Mind,
When their names were called out
“You are for her!”
“She is for you!”
Then they knew
With a knowing that knows no no-ing,
They knew.

And then…
As the curtain parts
As the veil lifts
As the fog disperses
They know
They know that they know the other
Like they know that they know themselves.

And with a smile of recognition,
And a laugh of cognition,
She surrenders herself
To the surrendered him.
She opens and is filled
He enters and is enveloped.

And so they merge,
To each a missing side,
A part denied,
A dimension less.

He slides deep into her
She slides deep around him,
And like a Mobius strip
They intertwine:
No beginning and no end,
No before and no after,
No above and no below,
No him and no her,
Just them.

I am a late-comer to poetry especially Jewish-laced love poetry. In the last two years I have written about 50 such poems that I am now trying to publish under the title - The Metaphysics of Love. They are about love - love for women as a metaphor for the Divine love - sometimes employing very erotic images inspired by the Song of Songs and Kabbalistic literature.
