Her Heart To Another Belong

Updated on July 2, 2016

Sun, Moon and Stars

Captured in a fragile corporal frame

She glitters, beckons to my soul, heart, body, mind

Stars to a child, traveler

Light to Silas’ child

Yet cannot I touch

Burns with the fury of fire

Freezes with the scalding intensity of ice

Midnight on the seas of live-coal sands

Accuse me not of Prufrocking

For her heart to another belong

Afar off, I quench the maddening thirst in my eyes

Shielding my sight with pieces of broken beer bottles

Someone teach me how to pray! Someone!

And I will learn to pray for one

No teach me not, I pray

Least my prayer when said is unanswered

Teach me patience then, and I will have hope

Fruitless search

Vain resolve

Painful thoughts

Teach me not patience but Patience double

That I may have Hopes many

And Dreams abundant

Alone in my dreams none other can touch

She can be mine then

Forever

Someone dare not say

That another Prufrock has been mangered

I am better than he

I almost believe so
