Twilight


Turn your eye
and don't look back,
the littered past
is long and black.

A twisted key?
A twisted lock?
A twist of fate...
a mental block?

An ever cautious
mind moves on,
translates, then darkens,
thrives upon
its own oppression
deep and stark,
yet yearning for
the lively spark.

    Oh those nasty twists of fate, did you ever wonder how you got to here?
    A littered past... all those days or just tossed dreams?
    A mental block? ... a cautious mind? An ever vigilant mind?
    Thriving on it's own oppresive dark thoughts?
    Perhaps... maybe... or just once too many times burned by those
    sparks of lively joy. (Report) Reply

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,
