Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …

Squarely Done

Squarely Done

I lastly beg for mercy true,

Lastly wish, once Death forgets Life,

Beg once her touches, her perfume,

For Death touches all, but lightly.

Mercy forgets her, but she lives!

True Life, perfume lightly, lives loved.

Hypothesis

Hypothesis

 

routine,

same old same old,

day after day, no change,

stuck in these habits and patterns,

rote repetition, without any thought.

So, what would happen if I did

one thing differently?

Experiment!

Let’s see.

Extinguish

25 March 2010

Extinguish

I have been wondering lately, if

I could ever write myself out,

empty myself of all words,

stop the thoughts from coming,

ask no more questions,

stop existing

through my pen,

but I

can’t.
