Maya


The
spectacle was fleeting,
And
moments shadowed our narrative,

Seeking the kindness of an original.

I-happiness-junkie squeezed verve;
Plunging into a flash
I spent stunning memories,
Readily.
We were once remarkable,
Touching an agile earth
In the serene of a shared imagination;

We were together, not one.

I spelled out hesitation on her womb,
And swam lackluster love, crying.

We still lay awake, forgiven yet lost.

Strange, drunk and potent,
It was all written on our sands:

This heart is a universe that grows

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
