Cipher

I am unbound by the mechanics of physics

Still, I am bound by fathomless emotion
to some remembered dream of
indulgent romanticism and
love’s grace with shining eyes
laughter in delight and peace

Let my sacrifice not be in vain
or let it be at least not forgot
vanquished in indifferent limbo
eclipsed by the dark moon

Yearning wretchedness in melancholy adjournment
of form and function and conscious thought
used and tossed aside as careless as a tissue

Dare I not delude myself with visions of
a life sought with longing and desire
not found nor lost but merely the
incoherence of scream of truth
cast aside in craven self-absorption
a rendering of heart and soul
