The Eve Perceiving of I


Enigmatic, I
Seen as something else
But that of what is perceived
As that for which does not go deeply within

Visually seen
By eyes that cannot inhabit dreams
Locked by a box made by their own closed existence
Free to escape, but never

Incompatibly seized
Contradictions at play
No answers displayed
All becomes a childish game

Loosely explained
By those who insist their sane
See me in the other way
Oh, Well, Hey, I am myself after all

If you want to know the true meaning of this method
Look at the first stanza and you what society means to me,
Go ahead? Go behind?
Do you see the good in, I?

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

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,
