Through A Page Dimly

It may take

a book to see

how lofty I

tend to be.

Could I ever

even see it then

as my life

spills from a pen?

Shall I write

myself amongst stars?

Above the fray,

fast past all the scars?

I can surprise

myself how so easy

the little things

serve to please me.

How if I did not

easily I’d forget

clarity on pages

or how I’ve wept.

Blackness is all

around in here.

On this page now,

I now shed a tear.

Could I rhyme

each time every line?

Could I find

moments I was blind?

Maybe I could,

Maybe I would.

Does not mean

that I should.

But wounds beckon

outside they awaken

from the paths that I

did or never have taken.
