Clenched Vesper


If only I could pirouette
Like a celestial body upon your orbits,
I would
And coil the night into day,
And transmute day not into night
But into a lasting dew-clad dawn.
And there, we would breathe through the glass
And cut ourselves using the serrated grass
So I could dab your wounds and kiss the pain
Away into obscurity -
I keep you like the sand that remained
As I clench my fist and my soul -
Have you seen one?
A clenched soul?
I haven’t
Until I looked into your eyes like windows
Leading to my room.
I saw a child,
Chained.
Slavered.
Tortured.
Enamori ng.
Hoping.
Star-crossed
And resolute.
Yet I wish to remain there
Everlong.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
