Am I built of

more than flesh?

Then, what will remain

when I’m laid to rest?

 

A Heart of Pure gold,

and Ivory bones?

Or Papers and Books,

and a Will like Stone?

And Time scrolls on,

motioning not to its Underlings

(who heavily preoccupy themselves

with Trivial things).

It is impractical to try

and gaze into eternity.

For what I know of the world-

it does not give much to see.

 

Crystal balls and palms are,

too often, scams and schemes,

in which even those who own them

will soon find they believe.

“Words and eggs must be handled with care./Once broken they are impossible/things to repair.” ~Anne Sexton, from her poem “Words” in “The Awful Rowing Toward God”

“Each morning when the sun is shining, I look out the window and see how perfectly shaped the clouds are and how bright blue and inviting the sky is, and I fall in love with that morning. But the next day, I wake up and see that the sky is gray, and my heart is broken.
I think that’s why people become so wrapped up within themselves. We’re afraid to fall in love with things we know will break our hearts.”- Original
