The One With Self


Conduit for most surroundings
nearer edge one stands alone

Catalytic to others benediction,
own redemption cannot atone

Long lonely paths perpetual,
trudged somberly and on own

Seeking glimmer in darkness
familiarity amongst unknown

Involved in chores dreary
aiding in trying to subsist

Few proved a bit gratifying,
others wish I'd tried to resist

Affiliations deemed amiable,
prospects of some eternal bond

Most of those proved contrary
to expectancy didn't respond

Inverted angst fused with fury
found kind of subliminal release

Where self and persona conjoin
to handle odds with simpler ease

All sought becomes irrelevant
materialism is treated greed

Purpose of dissecting logic,
exceeds way beyond it's need

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
