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 Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
