Adieu

Maria

Far from the prodding eyes
of men and angels

she toils…

with the strength of mere men, 

amidst battalions of soldiers
she bears the world…

And then, her shoulders falling…

yet she stood, dying to all

the flickering embers of her own dreams

Beaten…
Battered…
And broken…

she veils her scars, commanding joys with her smiles 

bleeding…
as stars losing the shine from her own eyes, Yet sparkling 
colored red by the heat of stale tears

Beaten…
Battered…
And broken…

with punches thrown at the casket….
still  she veils the ache with a last beauty
smiling…

Maria

Mother of  earth
Pour out those jars of burdened  tears
into our empty pots of earth

Maria
queen  of all that is born by love
break these iron walls of silence…
Is this the last smile from a wooden casket?

Speak Maria...

A deafening silence 

Death hovers
in
the
belly
of your
silent pain 

dreams are dying!

Maria Speak…

Life is wilting !

Speak Maria…
this silence is loud

Salvation from terrestrial fantasy

adieu
