Dead to yourself
and your brilliant words
what kind of world
do you inhabit?

arrogantly craven?
maliciously darkened?

or merely a mind
with a writerís curse

merely a mind
with a personís hurt

so alone
you taste
and reach
without textured life
without a mirror
to reflect another soul  
close enough to touch

healing is a mad dream
too far
for a maddened Dreamer

yet felicity calls
and peace could sing
her requiem

if you but let it go...

let it all just flee

ah, you say,
if only it were that easy

if only it held the ease of breathing words...


(For you, dark one. Your friend K)

I truly wish it were that easy for me my friend, but 'tis not. Letting go of some things is very easy, other things cannot be released. Learning the difference and the things in between is the fun part.

"Peace" is such an odd word, odder still when it is applied to a headstone, yet "peace" is all I seek.

I think that my healing would stymie Mercury and his Caduceus were they to make the attempt.  

Thank you much for thinking enough of me to write verse for me dear friend.


 Now and forever, my heart hears ~one voice~.

I think Elizabeth says it best.....this is hauntingly beautiful and your wisdom is far beyond your years Severn....
Another piece very well done!!

 A soul that writes from the heart and shares it, truly gives a gift extraordinaire!

Martie and Pepper - thankyou!!! Wow - to be credited with wisdom is a true compliment, one that I hope I deserve. Big smiles for you, OPR.

Severn, letting go is sometimes the hardest thing in the world to do. Beautiful poem my friend.
