Brave and like a stag lock antlers


Love must have an answer to everything…
Now, look. Crying, what good does that do you?
If you; fill a well of deep despairing
It'll seep into every avenue…

Sure enough your heart will require sutures
To stem, its blackened blood, frothing the mouth.
So, be brave and like a stag, lock antlers
With the world, be like deserts almost drought.

Let cacti flowers open to the sun
Let your heart and soul, be one joyous thorn
Stabbing life; like a small kitten, smitten.
Somewhat with - its ball of lamb's wool; careworn.

Love must have an answer to everything…
Else, what's the point of us …all this bleeding?

Poem of the Day

poet Algernon Charles Swinburne

Kneel down, fair Love, and fill thyself with tears,
Girdle thyself with sighing for a girth
Upon the sides of mirth,
Cover thy lips and eyelids, let thine ears
