DARK RAPUNZEL



(In stygian light - the glow of stars - on moonless night...)



Dusk, I climb Arabia's stark, flat peak



Ever conscious of merciless Time,



That the Pool, reflecting, enriched by glimpsed undines;



Those who speak on Mid-Summer's Eve.



The Water Witch, which will answer this



Undying, undead wish -- a magick kiss



Which gives me the shadow delight...



I see HER face, (in stygian light,



The glow of stars on moonless night.)



Even As I look into the pool's phantasmal depth



The clock ticks away what moments I have left, before



The Moon so cruel, arises - no disguises



Can hold back the blood-red glower



Full Moon reflects upon the water.



Blood in the water, she's gone again, my darkling friend.

if I struck a chord...
I trust it isn't forever "the lost chord".

Perhaps, but such *expressive* eyes!

Thank you.

Nice. Thanks for sharing. I needed that about now, methinks...

concerning now
My profound thanks. I needed it, too, which is why it was composed when it was, at dawn this morning.

quite nice.
after seeing your 'freakshow' reply, i had to come check out your journal. I added you to my Friends list, if you don't mind.
So, in additon to freakshows, we have U of A in common, too.
Curious world!

curious
thanks for friending me, and your kind words on my efforts.

The curious synchronicities of life never cease to amaze me. Freak shows, and the U of A, and it was during my years in Arizona that I saw the last more-or-less freak show...at the State Fair. A couple of years earlier, as mentioned, I saw a real "side show row" at the Florida State Fair, and - save for Ripley's, that was the end of it, though there are lots of people still interested, I think.
