Topic: MiscPoems

what is that which marks you?
are you the keeper of bones?
is it you my brother?
and by what measure should you atone?

or you will receive attention...
or you will receive the most attention...

again, what is that which marks you?
are you the placer of stones?
first you must build the walls my brother,
and then you may set the domes...

it will come to serve you well...
so that you may come to tell...

tell of the secrets only you have known,
then tell of the ways that you atone...

This evokes a lot. It would take me lifetimes to atone for my sins.

This is very in a cloak and dagger way ethereal
in the way the past might hold misconceptions
in a mystical way like a stone that never forgets
or forgives
This word atone, can only be achieved
by one who is remorseful
Would Socrates atone
Would the church
Will you, my brother
Will you

Poetry is much like a great photo, a single "moment in time" capturing many feelings and emotions. Yet, they are very alive; creating stirrings within the readers who form visual "pictures" of the expressed emotions within the Poem. ©
