Rookie (Swansea)

Until We Freeze.


In the reflection of vanitas,
You look not at your mortality.
Such is the nonchalance of youth.
You deny death a hundred times a day,
Till the soft velvet of night begs you to wonder.
As you look upon the graven image of the moon,
And even the stars, like glittering lanterns in the sky,
As the universe gets colder and colder, even these must end.

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
