he is for hero-ed

his skin is his fatigue

no need for woven camouflage

the jungles as quaint and known

as a well worn living room

its secret ways deftly etched upon his unsleeping eyes

leader, rebel, ordained ruler

hero, deity, thief

rescuer, reaper, ruthless

wounded yet does not bleed

so many lay shielding him

of their own or owned will

unblinkingly i stare

awaiting

something urging me to keep looking 

there…. 

stealthily skulking off between the overgrown rushes…the unyielding reeds

so say the flickering shadows at the corner of my eyes

but

somehow unfitting

he lies too-still

all grossly revealing

that he is mortal in death.

 

Oh Icarus!

A poem special to me for reasons I don’t understand myself, it’s seems fitting that it’s my 100th post. =)

Oh Icarus!

Let me burn

let me burst the sky

Touching that valiant Sun

Floundering, i drown upon these wetly wings

i dream of scarring wax

while you disappear into light

the sun ignites your soul

while the Moon embitters me with her dance of waves

Destiny lifted you higher

Cowardice tempted me low

you are nothing more

i am with too much

let us cross

so that i may sink in sun

while you swim
