All is Vanity

ALL IS VANITY
30.09.2001

WHEN
I REACH TO TOUCH YOU
BUT
YOU NO LONGER ARE THERE
MY HEART
REMEMBERS LOVING YOU,
MY HANDS
FEEL BUT AIR.

O LONELINESS!
SUCH PAINFULL STRESS;
SWEETSOUR TEARS WELL UP
TO WASH
THE WINDOWS OF MY SOUL,
I DRINK
MY DESTINED CUP
OF ROSEWINE TURNED FOUL:

WE LOVED
WE LOST
EACH WENT OUR WAY,
WERE MOVED
BY THE COST
OF CULTURE'S SWAY:
IS NUBILE FUTILE?
DEFIANCE OR COMPLIANCE?
RECONCILIATION OR MASTURBATION?
WHO CAN BE CELIBATE?
PRIDE WILL AGGITATE:
PREVENTANCE IS REPENTANCE?

INFECTED BY PROFANITY
WE SENTENCED EACH OTHER TO MELANCHOLY
DIRECTED BY HUMANITY,
WE FORBID KINDNESS;
ACROSS AEONS
AND ACRES UPON ACRES OF LEGALISMS
WE SEARCH GOD'S ABSOLUTES
THROUGH
DUSTY GRAINS OF TIME,
YET FIND WE NOUGHT
AS WE OUGHT;

CHILD IN TEARS
SORROW BEARS:
WEIGHT OF EMPTY DREAMS
CANNOT FIND HOME
IN A SORDID TOMB
BURRIED IN DRIED UP STREAMS;


HOW DO WE LIVE?
HOW DO WE GIVE
WITHOUT A SPARK OF LOVE?
A TREASURE TROVE
IS TO BE WHAT EVIL IS NOT:
LOCKED
WITHIN THE CLUTTERED CONFINES OF CONVENTION
FLOAT
LOVE AND FAITH INDEFINITELY IN SUSPENSION…

LET'S FOREGO TO HEED MEN
AND MAYBE
LOVE'S RESIDUE BRINGS US BACK TO EDEN?
