Sol Journey: The Poets Cut

Stripped to nothing
I waited for your return
The time when again
Under you my flesh burns

Cool breezed demeanor
I saw you approach
In bated breath
What topics to broach

Should I tell of sacrifice
Of how I have lost it all
Or perhaps you know that
From afar you watched me crawl

I've burnt myself up in hell
Since the last time we spoke
When I gave you my intentions
Bathed in your yolk

Wrapped in your calidity
A rewrite of my helix
Unbending its curve
Given a new point of axis

On your love I spin
Was my honor enough?
I can wait another year
Hell is not so rough

Stripped to nothing
I waited for your return
The time when again
Under you my flesh burns


The Poets Cut

This piece was written in June 2011 and very much metaphors the very deep relationship with myself that I was undergoing. Both my light and my shadow, all my form being embarrassed and loved ruthlessly. 

The image was taken in 2014 and I selected it for this poem today because of the reflective tone the sun in the puddle adds.
