Requiem for Fugacity

IMG_0095a rip in the haze
a split in the rays
a seed in the bloom
a room in the womb
a print in the cloud

so not
to
end
in a
grievous
shroud

one drop in the air
one line in a prayer
one seat in a town
one gem in a crown
one truth in a lie

so not
to
end
in a
rueful
sigh

we deal with life’s board
to lift off the sword
that hangs as a threat
and tend to forget
what is our lot

to
matter
at
all
or
probably not

    • absolutely, what I meant was that sometimes people try so hard to matter (to be “someone”) especially in our days and age and they tend to forget that being “someone” doesn’t matter in the grand scheme of things – but being someone to someone that is what matters, so tried to play a bit with that idea. Thank you for reblogging!

  3. Some magical lines here…
    a room in the womb
    one line in a prayer
    one truth in a lie
    to
    matter
    at
    all
    or
    probably not
