The posings of a poet.

THIEF


From:dark.pozadia.org

I SAW YOU

       THERE
             IN YELLOWED
                       LIGHT
STANDING QUIETLY
           JUST TO HIS
                    RIGHT
I FELT YOUR
         BREATH
           UPON
               MY
                FACE
AS I HEARD
       YOU
          CARRY
              HIM
                FROM THAT
                      PLACE
THE SKY WAS
       YELLOWED
             WITH
                 MOTTLED
                        GREY
AT LEAST IT WAS
          FOR ME
             THAT
                     DAY
I’VE OFTEN
     WONDERED
   DO
      YOU
          ATTEND
THE
       CEREMONY
           OR DO WE
                OFFEND
BY CLINGING
     TO WHAT
            IS NOT THERE
TRYING
   TO GRASP
        WHAT’S IN YOUR
                              CARE
WHEN IT’S
        TIME
         AND YOU
                  COME FOR
                                 ME
I PRAY
  MY SOUL
       LIFTS EASILY
FOR I HAVE
        TRIED
          TO SHARE
                NOT HOARD
AND FIND OTHERS
  INTO WHICH
           I’VE
              POURED
ALL I
        KNOW OF YOU
                   AND
                        LIVING
DON’T KNOW
      WHAT YOU’D
                 CONSIDER
                        GIVING
BUT IF
        POSSIBLE
              I’D LIKE
                   TO WALK
BY YOUR
          SIDE
            AND HAVE
                    SOME TALK
ON WHAT
        ABOUT US
            HAUNTS YOU
                                   SO
WHEN
          WE
               FOLLOW
                         WHERE YOU
                                     GO
AND
    WHAT WAS IT
             LIKE
                      UPON THAT
                              DAY
WHEN MY
         SKY WAS
                     YELLOW
                           WITH
                      MOTTLED
                            GREY
