Masquerade is Calling Again


You…my friend…my only friend
Broken, broken again
Torn to shreds by a different end
Cast away into a distant land
To meditate, to become strong willed
To pick up the scattered fragments of hope left behind
Headstrong, the voices call it
A simple design yet you are on a failed flight
They say, they say you were destined to fail, never prevail
But I know your strife, I know it well
You would strive to win even if it kills you
Firefly, won’t you shine so bright
Light the way, to finally seize the day
Although I hate your ways, I can’t deny
I strive to fight like you, to be like you
To take the reins and control the path I need to tread
Firefly…I called out: FIREFLY! ! ! !
And you know I did
I put my trust, my faith, and my beliefs in you
To guide me through this bittern end
But Firefly, help me through this firefight
Because I’m borderline to start a masquerade of painful brutality
On a face full of smug arrogance and cockiness, filling others with discontent
Now I hate this way, wish they would dissipate
better word is disappear; don’t want to hear their name or I will be enraged
Eh, oh well; this day will pass one day, this will end one way
By my own hand or the forces controlling the wind

Poem of the Day

poet Sidney Lanier

Once, at night, in the manor wood
My Love and I long silent stood,
Amazed that any heavens could
Decree to part us, bitterly repining.
My Love, in aimless love and grief,
