! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! The Day the World Ended

when did madness of my eyes
melted to a quiver …. fell off my lips

when did your longing
draped a shroud and escaped…. a gasp

when did hope part
and entered your lungs a deep drag

when did lust for your lips
got coiled onto some commercial legs

when did the wind from your hair
offloaded my breath

when did your fingers left castle of my hold
and found new brick and mortar

when did I cease to exist
and became errata a disclaimer in every syllable

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
