lucy lies

June 19, 2013

lucy lies
across the bed
tells us she’s okay

empty eyes
once blue, now red
gently drift away

some disguise
of mortal thread
feels its edges fray

heaven spies
an angel shed
more than souls should weigh

soon she’ll rise
a corpse, stone dead
just like yesterday

and reprise
the role she’s bled
drop by drop each day

none baptize
the heart, the head
they just fade away

through the sighs
and words unsaid
shared with those at play

lucy lies
in all our stead
so for her we pray


true legacy

June 10, 2013

nothing lasts forever
but the memory of Heaven
which is to say
what’s done each day
is legacy to all men
