the loneliness in you...


a lonely soul
speaks
the sweetest

like a bird
that you trapped
with the sap
of the jack fruit tree

now caged
inside your
mind

so must you
sing now

shy away from prose
onward

the language of the music of
your soul

how lonely must it be
but how sweetest

so must you speak no more
about
where you are
and when and
why

you are what you are now
oh! lonely self

speaking with the silence of
the deepest ocean

"Oh Day of Fire and Sun"
by Sara Teasdale

Oh day of fire and sun,
Pure as a naked flame,
Blue sea, blue sky and dun
Sands where he spoke my name;

Laughter and hearts so high
That the spirit flew off free,
