The moment I felt Death courting you
my rib cage collapsed. I curled
into childhood: the strange little girl
always alone, talking to herself
on the playground, thinking she
was whispered a safe solitude
of hush-holy clouds, relieved
to slip away from mating rituals
unnoticed; a detached solitude
seeing only in shades of rock
beneath a surface any touch
or even death couldn't reach.

Listen: Love is the beginning of Truth
you were the first coup de foudre
I climbed and the last amour
out of this place. Wherever
the courtship carried you,
if ever a marriage or honeymoon,
I renounce this waiting of hope;
this solitude of celibate womb;
this misguided Magic Flute -
just to see Love embracing you
before finally surrendering
to my own destined course.

This I promise the Universe.

~

Incredible! The words almost seem to run together, as if the speaker is forming them with the odd, tumbling swiftness in which thoughts form. The first stanza touched me with the reference to a strange, lonely child who slips away from "the mating," whispering and safe.

A well deserved DD and a new fave. :) :clap:
