eternal flame

keep cool in schools like fishes swim
feel the coral reef beyond belief so thin the fin
there is a bond to dive from
the surface
fathomed far below found
fondly underground
to neglect the one pure love suits harm bemoaning odious
a karmic mental bar an obstacle superfluous
of charms to throw away on a
dalliance my insignificance
to survive with not a husband nor a wife
but the childlike things I say and do
have a gravity pulling me through-tell me about you-as for me I
haven’t got a clue without the closeness, sad as a mad strain of peace
and karats
to drown my sorrows in shiny objects
to let go of the pain, to fight for
the fire
my eternal flame.

Do something awesome. Tell a friend:
