Oh What Pain And Confusion. But it Made me Who I am Today. Happy.

21 Apr 1993 (Written on my birthday when I was 19)

I see a young lady her face dappled with tears,

She stands and stares at what she only hears;

Her arms of peaches and cream

droop alongside,

Her scarlet hands

limp and weak;

Her body

draped in a mattered cloth,

she sways

as if balancing;

I know a young lady once gentle and meek,

I know a young lady now discouraged and bleak.

Dear Toshack

Fly my bird. Fly high. Fly away.

But please, sing me one song and drop me one feather;

Then, when you come to rest and you fly no more –

In my heart, you will fly forever.

Rest my bird. But please, rest in peace.

O Lovely one, thrill me with your lancinating dependence,

Thou art susceptible to confession, yet apprehensive –

O Lovely one, with the daunting addiction,

Acquit yourself of your intractable nemesis,

Your cynical facade is sinister to no one but thou –

O Lovely one, escape of your malaise,

For your profundity is of greater design.

I am a daunting extrovert,

an abominable exuberant;

My platonic desire is boasted in simplicity:

I am the frozen austere periphery –

A catalyst?

Maybe.

Pray love, do not prevaricate concerning your life,

Falsehood of man can only lead to his demise;

Though the truth is easy to deny, one must forge it to answer to reality;

For in balance with honesty – Is corruption.

Pray tell why Love, does your apprehension cease to exist in the most crucial of tempting times,

When the hawk-eye of Nemesis glares down at us?

Love, If Love,

Bid farewell to a lie so true

And indulge into hesitant emotions,

for in balance with this loyalty – This intractable trust.
