Tis So Curious


Tis so curious how a mind creates the limbo in which it must dwell
How the soul scuttles desperately about like a small animal hiding
Quiet in great chaos- these curious circumstances-
can fascinate and confound -

Pondering how the soul gives up its life to the terrible objects surrounding it -so that by mysterious and strange osmosis it is encrusted-ensconced-beyond itself, immured in the body it begat

Perhaps by some mysterious order of things.. a carefully crafted refuge, a harboring thicket of distraction thus mercifully displaces reason, beacons beyond all distress and tumult, whispering in familiar refrain- forget, you are now safe from all this

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
