Liturgy - Poem by Pete Zaesar Galula
The wheels have turned
And so are the hands in clockwise motion
Still not submitting to oblivion
Just what lies inside your soul?
I could never expunge you
You stay, you have stayed
even in unfathomable depths
of my memory
Does your presence speak of continuity?
to this unthinkable, pernicious feat?
when i know at the very end,
a ridiculous defeat;
Poetry is never my liturgy
only an addiction when you remind
my foolish mind
that a ladrone has stolen
my heart, and will you ever
give it back?
And so the days go by
I'm not yet saying goodbye
I'll just have to saunter
though every step leads me to nowhere
And so the clock tells me to stop
'You have drowned for so long'
'You have sung the same song'
'You have scribbled enough suffering'
'When will you end your heart's beating? '
And so i watched as the wheels turned
Days and nights- let them roll
Forgetting the feeling, only dreams will do
I'll sing the same song
I'll scribble more
For this is my liturgy
