splendor magnificent


A vessel contents unknown 
all that unconformity speaks of 
dramatic and real 
never to be placed on a shelf 
by any man’s hand dead or alive

Waiting on empty faith refrained
imagining crystalline brotherly love 
untainted and shockingly pain free

Monsters they come 
in velvety gift wrapped boxes 
chipping away porcelain veneer 
weakening bonds of molecular structure
levee breaks and inside turns out

A solitary heart with no legions at my side
raised arms against a fortress of spades
pledging my life in return splendor magnificent

    This is a good read my friend. Reminds me of that phrase from Forest Gump: "Life is like a box of candy, you just never know what you're gonna get." Good job here. God Bless, JB
