creeping out

To ‘Elsy

She watched him fall
quietly off to sleep
Pure unsaintly voices conjured in her mind

; walk away. in your dream. walk away to me

He’s never to be mine,
rousing herself she chastised
Neither shall I ever be his

White stains black; the dermatologist had once said
As it was in the begining
forever it shall so remain

The fallen Tablets broken
Moses was only man
a mortal in a burning bush

The fire set ablaze
his young impressionable mind

I have seen God; he alarmed
Only I can be followed
off into the wilderness

A place promised on foggy nights
A voice unsaintly conjured
in her eyes

Manna falls atop a tree
A plague afflicts their mountain
Love is bright Orange

For hearts set apiece
Life’s truly about
Boy Meets Girl; Girl Meets Boy

She watched him fall
deeply off to sleep
; walk away. in your dream. walk away from her

To me.
