Where Lie LiesLove be not proud; for those who might call thee divineWhere Lie Lies5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Or lovely are not so. Will you ever offer
Your light to the worthiest? You enjoy to shine
Where poison and mud are melting. Foolish miser!
Rewarding ignorance, arising cowardice,
- You deceiver! You're nothing but the hugest lie
To the gods. I am not longing to roll your dice
Anymore. Weakness and fear, fetters and noose die!
Are not for me. I'm not like you, common human:
My fate will note be bound to one simple orphan.
For to embrace the world in its whole purity,
Your heart has to be true and your eyes to peer through
The mists of human kind. Do not be mislead, though :
I love you more than your love now, I'm truly free!
She was BeautifulWe have a daughterShe was Beautiful4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
quiet with little fuss
& molding us as god.
Her small verbs
span indifferent cities,
aloof mountain ranges,
& the hours of
blank faced clocks
She knows there are
worse things than dark
the black waters of the mind
We have created her
pressed & dried bouquets
& willow sticks
things only we
could make a life from.
One day we'll wake up
as different people
but the magic
of a shared procreation
will keep us tied
wanting to see each other's
newly patchworked faces.
We have a daughter
holding our hands together
& keeping the spaces & cracks
from collapsing our lives.
