Filigree

Sayeth the eternal lover
“Where does the aching end?”
Sayeth the lonesome seeker
“I will never feel at home”
Sayeth the wistful butterfly
“No one understands”
Sayeth the rusted sword
“I used to invoke fear”

Sayeth the mystic
“Suffering is the illusion”
Sayeth the sharing vice
“You’ll never know if you abstain”
Sayeth the twisted greed
“From my excess I can uplift”
Sayeth the emotional cripple
“I give as much as I receive”

Sayeth the crumbling forts
“Once we commanded awe”
Sayeth the misconceived dogmas
“Only the faithful persist”
Sayeth the blooms in the meadow
“Beauty is a fleeting feast”
Sayeth the cumbersome onus
“Everything implicates everything”
