Rookie - 0 Points (28 August / St. Thomas University Hospital)

.. Farewell


`


grief belies this despised state
hunched upon shuffling feet
pondering the crunch of
browned leaves

grief burrows this desiccated soil
hidden beneath scurrying paws
forgetting the crush of
billowy waves

grief bruises this demented breath
hollowed out withered lips
releasing the fluttering wings
cotton-downed doves

grief bellows across horizons
herding the flock from grazing
shackling the gates
embracing the nightfall

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
