I curse the day


I curse the day
As does a vulture - its living prey
I cursed that day, I met you
I rue the day, I drew breath,
And you kissed me.
Almost; resuscitating, me
Back from a living - death.

I curse the day
I meditated my heart hewn
Like a green bamboo cane
You press your lips to breathe.
I cursed the opal moon...

I curse the day
Those pea-green shadows leafed
Like living, blades, through my soul.
Naked you swim beneath my skin,
And redemption pardons me.
Restores me like a pearl therein.

But you my black swan
I curse the day
I fell in love with you: My doe eyed faun.
I curse the day
As does a vulture - its living prey
I curse that day, I met you.

I rue the day, I drew breath,
And I kissed you.
I curse the day
Those pea-green shadows leafed
Like living, blades, through my soul.
When empty black wings flew,
Despairingly, apart with nothing left to console.

Under thy long locks thou may'st have the scall
But after my making thou write more true!
