and such I'm born

Written by: Joseph Granda-Padron

we speak in soft moments of bliss
looking towards the momentous     towards
the horizon     the line of
passion that escapes our lips

and such i’m born

given over to a word     a world
where knowledge no longer holds sway
nolonger dominates the intellect     stoic
sex     illuminating the sky

and such i’m born

hands glide     caress and confide
gifting me the urge     your eyes
sing in several tongues of ecstasy
several strides     along the spine

and such i’m born

forsaken and devoured i stand     learned
no longer influenced     neither heart     nor
physical form     guiding my gift    my
last chance at life     at humility

and such i’m born
