Sapphic Stanzas

A moment of memory still lingers here,
Lost among all the things I long to forget
Refusing to crumble into future dust
Of wasted dreaming.

Closed all the doors and double bolted hatches
Deny that one thought a single moment more
Of emotional response to that selfish hate
Carved in empty smiles.

Thirst no more for a world hidden in old lies
Drink freely in the beauty of truth’s openness
And walk silently towards the rising sun
And love shall thrive.
