Pulpit Of Faith


Upon faith’s pulpit,
Hope sweetens hearts__
Yet pain winds up in flesh;
Vow as lies vow
Adduced fresh about windfalls
Adorned then addicted
To be adored with piety__
With the going by times,
Spills far to hearts snoozed;
Sedative as hypnosis
Tethered on fangs invisible
Dipped in shadows
Of the adventists wistful
For the withering Rose-Aries.

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,
