Pursuing the poetical, paradoxical, metaphorical, lyrical, artistical, majestical, and mystical.

No Execution


I plan and plot 
to prepare a grandiose 
gesture, impressive 
intentions always in 
the making, but forever 
undelivered. 

Disheartened past 
discouragement, his
endurance disappears 
before I can be bothered
to execute the sacred
grace the smallest 
gesture bestows.

This is sad but lovely.

Yes -- sad and lovely all in one. A delicate balance to achieve. Well done.

This caused me to expel a big, pensive sigh.
