Email Poem | Today's Poetry


You have everything and all
The shiniest apple on the tree
Hiding among a riot of leaves
But no one ever seems to mind
Always willing to make the climb
With no thought of a fall
You drift beautiful and careless
To swim lonely among the clouds
So high above regret, so proud
Without reservation you behold
Your conquests as they're bound and thrown
To unforgiving currents--
Here today, tomorrow gone 

Bright your star burns
Fast it fades
Leaving you to the dark
That's coming your way--
A sliver of silver 
To kiss your wrist
And crimson pearls
For your little black dress--
Nothing for you but the very best
You have all and everything 
Holding you from harm
The gods reach out
To touch your palms
And carry you to calm
(for now)
Summer, 2013
