Email Poem | Today's Poetry
In long days passed
Before if only sighs 
Could spear the skies
And bounce about the atmosphere,
Returning to earth like great comets
To carve rivers and gorges,
Love was pure--not forbidden:
Not a fatal risk
You loved the one your heart pulled you to
The one you wanted--body, soul, spirit
Disapproving glares
And wagging tongues
Made us throw our heads back with laughter!
You loved the one you wanted
Monolithic mountain ranges
Are the only remains:
Silent monuments
To strength that will never cease
Bone-chilling screams resound
As the Seas fill with pain--
There are no more tears to cry
The body, once shrine to the soul
Is now a temple of errors....
Lift your glass to the heavens--
Bow your head for the benediction
This good earth has slowed to a waltz,
And soon will revolve no more
 (not even to pagan music)
