Best Poem of Harlequin Rose

Passion's Apple

The art
was in the way she moved
in the logic of all my dreams
see, I would like to make her my secret
but such silence would betray me
a reflective pause
skillfully woven into the fabric
of our conversation
strategic innuendo
that catches the ear by surprise
a passionate contemplation
a fruit
cool and sweet
from the body of the virgin
an elusive butterfly
captured.

The Radiant Child

I fear this time
might be the last time
for this radiant child
she has not yet learned to live
so she loves with reckless abandon
she takes the broken soul she was given
and uses it to make the others whole
she tries so hard to fly
but her wings are saturated with the sweat
