I snatch your angels
From the waves
Of a treacherous silence,
A box apart from
The residual graves.
As simple as a moon
Fashioned of clay
My self recriminations
Spring up helter-skelter
In moments overcast.
How could I have lost you
When I held on with all my might?
What can fix perfection
And if not you
Then what can I alter
Without covering up
These essential lies,
One void from the next.
We were quite the pair
Miscreants starved for reason,
Two perfects eggs
In a cycling bath.
My courage no longer raw
I cling to a barren science.
Your kisses thieving worms,
Your eyes retracted halos
How can I die in the cradle
Of such a gorgeous silhouette?
Unrelated to the poem I am having technical issues with WordPress. My notification feature does not seem to be working, so I no longer receive emails when someone likes a post. This feature is very helpful for me because I have memory issues and so I really hope that it’s not been phased out =(

I hadn’t noticed any problems with mine. I just liked your post though. See what happens.
Today I seem to be receiving, yesterday nothing so I got a little spooked
Thank you Tessa
Not a problem! I help where I can.
Sorry to hear about the technical issues. Once again you’ve WOW-ed me with every word, especially your trademark stellar opening–those 3 first lines, oh gosh how I wish I’d written them. You’re too much, too much good–what a privilege to read your work, know you a little.
Reading it yet again–stunned by every perfectly drawn and placed word, clear to the end. This poem may well be your Opus, dear heart.
Aww thank you I was actually pleased with this one which rarely happens
Seriously? You’re rarely pleased? Then you should be reading every post from over here in my cubicle!
haha we are own worst critics
True enough, Yves, true enough. So I’ll just keep telling you sincerely that you blow me away with your stellar writing–everyday (that’s the extra amazing part– as I can do good work some days, but shoot, you just whip it out like it’s nothing all the time). Have a blessed day. 🙂
Thank you so much I truly appreciate your support and encouragement =) I am also happy to remind you of your beautiful awe-inspiring talent!
That is incredibly sweet of you and the feeling is mutual
Ohhh, bless your heart–thank you!!
Mine is somewhat erratic and notifications never seems to work on my mobile! Great poem !
Thank you so much Chris =) It seems to be better now but yesterday I wasn’t receiving any notifications and I was a bit worried after reading on various blogs that others were experience WP gremlins of their own. I don’t use my cell to surf just my normal computer (I know I am positively primitive)
ME TOO!!! Positively primitive! I miss the days when cordless phones were the newest technology. 😛
I refuse to get with the times. Basic, simple, old-school ~ all the way, baby.
haha I like to keep it simple honestly it drives me nuts how people spend all day face down staring at their cell phone when there are people right beside them trying to have a conversation!
I love the word “snatch.”
These are my favorite lines:
“What can fix perfection”
“Miscreants starved for reason”
“I cling to a barren science”
Thank you so much! I admit I juvenilely giggled when I saw box and snatch in the poem
