The troublesome heart
The troublesome heart The tear in the eye The ashes of those departed too soon The promise of less the vengeance of quiet despairing caress These wake me at night distract me in sun light misguiding my dreams confusing the frailty of truth with faith A knife in one hand the harboured resentment fictitious remembrance conditioned debasement It closes the circle leaving really nothing at all A life in one hand the dignity of you without flow of breath who vacated, withdrew It closes the cycle leaving me at curtain call A smirk intimated the arrogance of spirit a sentiment cultivated of smiles abrogated A thing none may fathom as God masqueraded a wife, a confessor a trinity amalgamated And then a passion the defiance of Nimrod An achievement in his fashion the effrontery of fraud But now it's time for asking for forgiveness for transgressions known unknown Time for humility the recognition of smallship inevitability of dissolution 25-IX-2013
