have you seen…

i cannot recall
the ride
from the city
the cold water
around my feet
rushing through
my lungs
unholy water
washing away
my fears
a baptism
of human lust
has brought
me here
to drink
from this chalice
of unfulfilled
childhood dreams
a chalice
brought to my lips
on the blade
of a spear
thrust into my side
who did not
even know
my name

  1. In gratitude for all you feel, say and share, I’m giving you an award (will be on the post of the 26th). You know you don’t have to do a thing with it, but it’s my way of saying thanks, Charles.
