Vermis Meridiem

More Stars than There are

Month: December, 2014

In Flight

I had been

So Afraid,

 

But as the ground

Began to shrink

 

Bit

by

Bit,

 

Until Everything

Below become

Infinitesimally

 

flat and small,

 

Even Fear

Paused

To look

In Awe.

Wretched Saints

The deep sorrows of

The truly good

Rarely show—

 

Except when they are

Helplessly unveiled

 

In the mute

Solemn,

And elusive grimace

Of the Angel.

So Comes Bed Time

Oh Yes,

We surely have spent

This Daylight

Thinking of

And preparing for

The new Dawn—

 

All the Grit

And hardy Sweat

Expended

Rebelling against

The Eternal Doubt of

No Tomorrow.
