I want to name for you, indolent sorceress !
The divers marks of beauty which adorn your youth,
I want to describe your beauty,
In which are blended childhood and maturity.

When you go sweeping by in your full, flowing skirts,
You resemble a trim ship as it puts to sea
Under full sail and goes rolling
Lazily, to a slow and easy rhythm.

On your large, round neck, on your plump shoulders,
Your head moves proudly and with a strange grace,
With a placid, triumphant air
You go your way, majestic child.

I want to name for you, indolent sorceress !
The divers marks of beauty which adorn your youth,
I want to describe...

Soon we shall plunge into the cold darkness,
Farewell, vivid brightness of our short-lived summers!
Already I hear the dismal sound of firewood
Falling with a clatter on the courtyard pavements.

All winter will possess my being : wrath,
Hate, horror, shivering, hard, forced labor,
And, like the sun in his polar Hades,
My heart will be no more than a frozen red block.

All atremble I listen to each falling log,
The building of a scaffold has no duller sound.
My spirit resembles the tower which crumbles
Under the tireless blows of the battering ram.

It seems to me, lulled by these monotonous shocks,
That somewhere...

we tie time
in knots and try
to connect the dots,
but time was meant
to measure between
things and all
we’re measuring
is the difference
between his time
and my time
or between this time
and last time.
30 seconds in the microwave
means nothing
until those 30 seconds
could have been spent
eating the food,
talking to a sister,
or practicing that new
dance move which is only
new because it is newer
than those other moves
because its distance
is shorter to the present
than the other dance class
and not because
it is the next big thing,
although that makes a different
move new.
what i mean to say
is that time is overused,
overemphasized. we give
time the throne
and it rules and makes rules.
we follow them
because we like to think
that time is important
and we are important
and our time is gold,
but even gold
would have no value
if there were an endless supply,
and time is endless, but
not for us, but
time is endless nevertheless.

Diamond studded tears and broken cries
Heart full of troubles, head of lies
One passing moment and everyone dies
Scared as you look out and you watch the skies
Don't be afraid, it's just a game
One you don't play to take the blame
Without you here, nothing's the same
So we set fire and watched the flame
Because of you, I let it die
All our hope put in a lie
Dry your tears and hold your cry
We keep you safe, so hard we try
The bombs are gone, it's all been done
Then we hear them say we've won
Come out now and see the sun
Trust me, no more bombs, there's none
In this place you'll feel safe here
When the war of the worlds dropped its final tear

He saved me
He saved me from the lion.
He swept me off of my feet
While swinging on vines and climbing trees.
He talks to animals
Wrestles lions, leopards, and other wild animals
So strong, muscular, and sweet.
I stare into his beautiful dark eyes
I'm a little frightened
But he doesn't seem he wants to hurt me.
He looks at me as if he has never seen another human before.
He doesn't know how to react to a woman.
The thought of anyone finding me just slips my mind.
I just only think of him.
It starts to rain, as we're in a huge tall tree.
The leaves slightly protect us from the rain drops.
My mind starts to...
