Impermanence - Poem by Martina Moriarty

Your ceremony was of a short duration?
the length..of your struggle!
in the continuance of time.
The wealth of your holding-in
the grand estate of the heart is, without question
A holy dwelling!
The hasp of my soul
the keyhole
to your lovely bones...

    Quite stream of consciousness sounding. The breaking of the flow serves to slow the reader down to try and grasp what the author means...that being said, I am not sure that I know what the author means...An interesting read though. (Report) Reply
