in only this moment

if only to spend myself in the name
of some grand dream
if only to lose myself in the mirage
of a million tongues crying out with one voice
if only to stretch out and catch with my hands
that tenuous, shimmering thing above me
if only to sweat and chill and shatter
inside the clenched fist of conviction
if only to hold on white-knuckled
and never let go
if only to breathe in the darkness
and exhale the light
if only to feel the aching heartbeat
of a soul alive
alive in this moment
in only this moment
