How Much Are Words Like Bridges


How much are words like bridges-
Or fires, to cut a swathe,
Some distances not traveled;
Last stop, where love got off.

How often time's the bludgeon
That knocks us to our knees,
While heavy trains keeps coming;
While the smoke leaves on the breeze.

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
