Life Force 💫

Had I but known yesterday,

DELIA, you could discharge the ache Out of the cloud;

Had I known yesterday you could take

The turgid electric ache away,

Drink it up with your proud

White body, as lovely white lightning

Is drunk from an agonised sky by the earth

I might have hated you, DELIA.

But since my limbs gushed full of fire,

Since from out of my blood and bone

Poured a heavy flame

To you, earth of my atmosphere, stone

Of my steel, lovely white flint of desire,

You have no name.

Earth of my swaying atmosphere,

Substance of my inconstant breath,

I cannot but cleave to you.

Since you have drunken up the drear

Painful electric storm, and death

Is washed from the blue Of my eyes,

I see you beautiful.

You are strong and passive and beautiful,

I come like winds that uncertain hover;

But you

Are the earth I hover over. ~


Life is like a bunch of roses. Some sparkle like raindrops. Some fade when there's no sun. Some just fade away in time. Some dance in many colors. Some drop with hanging wings. Some make you fall in love. The beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Life you can be sure of, you will not get out ALIVE.(sorry about that)
