In Adoration Immortalis

17

The altar of love
Bears a crushing resemblance
To war, a soft circle
Of moss where we once lived

Tied to each other in disparity
And our hearts moved
Rhythmically, as tender
As the unison of poorly

Led troops, to be sacrificial lamps
In a game as old as life
To smooth the flowering grass
Of all that we once prized

The immoral gods were not
So immortal, after all
As our eyes once devoured
Each other, dear –

All bids disarm, all decades fade
The wild alarm of youth’s soul
In rage, on the brink of
The quivering skin of festivity

Forever trapped in time
Both in sight and sound

Speechless as a cherished tomb. Photo Courtesy: http://www.deviantart.com/art/nobody-knows-399333467

  1. Great poem Wuji! And the photo you combined with it, goes with it excellently. I like how you combine photos with your poetry, it really helps bring your poetry even more fully into my mind as an imagination aid. I’m very glad we came across each other on wordpress, your own creativity serves well to stir and sharpen my own, I think!
