Ezekiel's Song

This back
Bares
No
Silver wings
This head
No
Ring
Of gold
These feet
Must
Tread
This weary
Path
On power
Of their
Own

These eyes
Seek
No glistening
Light
These ears
Desire
No song
These lips
Whisper
Nothing
Except for
You alone

These hands
Cannot
Touch
What is
Flesh and
Bone
But the
Heat
Of this
Inferno
You know
As your
Own

This soul
Must
Live
In shadow
Always
One step
Behind
Forever reaching
For your
Heart
Your eyes
Your
Mind

No command
Sent
Me forth
I bare
No shield
Nor sword
Yet this
Eternal
Solider
Will march
With you
Forever
Forward

One flame
Divided--
Twins
Yet
Not the
Same--
One to
Weave life
The other
The
Fabric
Of dreams
To remain

  1. Wow. Like two poems in one. What the words say on the surface, and what they say beneath. Great writing.

  2. I second the wow! That is profound and perfect and written on so many levels. Wow.

"A musician must make music, an artist must paint, a poet must write, if he is to be ultimately at peace with himself. What a man can be, he must be." -- Abraham Maslow
