A Rose Arose - Poem by David Lacey
She beckoned my kiss with a glint in her eye
Winking out of time with the motion of her pose.
It seems now that she can not comprehend the Love
I send to her in riddle for as always the words dance
Around the chance of misunderstanding. Yet the song
Remains consistent within its inconsistency.
Desire not to desire nothing for it is a fearful desire in itself.
More than any heart can bare is the desire not to care.
I have been told to forget the girl, she whom I would save,
Proclaiming a saviour before the world.
Yet how am I to replace the memory of the form that
Formed the foundation of adoration?
How can I compensate my soul in loosing the portraits
I keep of her hung sacred within the corridors of the
Forever I’ll see to know her Love
As the caress of her glance eternal
Flits upon the silver screen still flickering.
Hopefully one day she will turn and say
‘I love you, I know now I always have’
Too many times she hath turned me away
Yet still I seek to hold true her Love as real.
