THE NIGHT IS MY HAVEN, MY SANCTUARY; IT CRADLES MY MUSE, MY VIGOR, MY SANGUINITY.
WHEN THEE AFTER DUSK COMETH LOOKING FOR ME, I REFLECT UPON THEE THAT'D COMETH ONTO ME.

The Fellowship

Monday, July 31, 2006

... and that is how my seconds unfold...

I loved my poison,
i loved it sweet...
what's lost is forgotten
in a heartbeat...

The second scent
is only a whiff
the second shot
is but a chance

the second glance
is a final twist
to a tale as hazy
as morning mist.

the second word
does the trick
you need no sword
when words prick...

my second wish
is death's kiss
to all my dish
that went amiss...

my second turn
at an awaited tryst
guarantees an ending
so very crisp.

PS: and that is post # 100 :)

"you've to wait for that heartbeat though" How long? And isn't that what a heartbeat supposed to be? Gone in a heartbeat? I mean unless someone is in cardiac arrest or something. I would think it would take a really long time to forget something lost. if at all you can forget!
But don't get me wrong. I absolutely loved the words.

Here's what happens or rather happened to me. People (I) tend to hold on to memories of bygones; baggage as they call it. It feels like those moments will haunt you for life... But if you're fortunate, there will come an instance of clarity when you'll forgive and foget all in a HEARTBEAT. It's amazing how the past ceases to linger. In a heartbeat, i've learnt to live today and have t'row to look up to. It's all happened in a HEARTBEAT.
