Wordle #183

183

Brenda Warren

A kiss fully enunciated

Will empty the lungs

But it is the heart

For which there is never hope

Enough to spare.

The doom of a great love

Can never be spared.

Pain is not intolerable,

We suffer in the name

Of all our causes and none

Quite so much as the right to live.

Pleasure takes courage,

To open oneself up to laughter,

To bare both secret and martyr

To a stranger, a fellow prisoner

In the membrane of a shadowed childhood.

Love takes the seer, however, apt or amiss

To a state not unlike insanity.

I shine, therefore, I am crazy.

One can neither underestimate

The tendency of diamonds towards blood

Nor the frailty of steel beneath magma.

One can never underestimate anything

As there is always a time and a place

For the unsuspecting victim to fall.

  1. her
    childhood
    was
    stranger
    than
    anyone
    could
    imagine
    she
    was
    a
    seer
    a
    diamond
    in
    the
    rough
    laughter
    followed
    her
    around
    she
    loved
    shiny
    things
    and
    often
    hid
    in
    the
    shadow
    of
    her
    favorite
    tree
    where
    she
    whispered
    her
    secret
    dreams
    to
    the
    bark
    and
    leaves

    people
    thought
    her
    crazy
    a
    martyr
    of
    sorts
    but
    she
    was
    unbreakable
    made
    of
    steel
    and
    never
    a
    prisoner
    of
    the
    status
    quo

    she
    was
    star
    dust
    and
    light

    and
    everything
    that
    touched
    her
    became
    beautiful
