a collection of poetry
time, for a moment: pushed away
an everlasting dream.
a bed, never known.
thoughts travel in a fluster.
rested, mutilated journey.
no armor; her frown heavy.
all my life, I have forgotten
the woman exclaimed,
“I was sitting in a ship,
I dreamed it you know.
shadow land, her eyes, brilliant,
beautiful, speechless wonder.”
“the word she had lifted stood motionless. she cried, locked the door, and gave you the key.”
“his face shining. he reached the top. a certain mingling one can never foresee. exploration in the depths of despair. all that the light disclosed was something oddly resembling a human shape. so rapt was his vision, so reverent his posture.”
“their father’s old, cracked, but sweet toned conversations came cheerily. she would contrive trouble. their habits dissimilar. each one boasted, determined not to be outdone.”
what should be
“the windows sobbed with the storm. vision a shimmering veil. I should be happy.”
“he is not the sort of man to smile. I’m an awful coward. I am afraid of him.”
“I have been longing for you with trembling lips. every time, her eyes moisten…a parting good bye.”
“she was not worth remembering. she pitied the pretty mind. she asked that I leave.”
