Poem – “Poem of a Dead Girl” – Romanticism – 6/4/2021

Life by firelight
Goes unnoticed
To the world that sentenced
Her, beneath
Crippled stems without their
Petals
And radiance.

I knew to love,
Knew to lie
While her flesh was
Within faltering reach.

Crippled,
Stagnant for no
Reason to be unearthed
From the grain,
With all delicacy
To her pain.

She had trembled among the leaves,
Unable, as I was able to think
Over which was, among the fall.

Autumn’s breeze was a mile for me
To dream of death
Among its deceit.

I lifted her veil,
To kiss her onward
With the sail,
By the fall of Autumn’s remembrance
To keep her singing until deliverance.
