Faceless (poem)


FACELESS


You are the Lazarus.

resurrecting.
in my mind.

dying

over and over. and over, again.

to rise. only

like sun and moon.

You are the Lazarus.

in my tears.
in my chest.
in. my. every thought.

you cannot die.

trapped. in the mine of a tomb.
buried. deep and dark.
season to season.

like loot.
or

Pandora's box.

I can't get you out. which one are

you

torment and lament. I dig you out.

an orphan's
revelation

that
evades resolution. I was your satellite.

cast out. and forgotten.

but you were never. the center of. the universe. you
are the star. called

Lazarus.

you are so idle and yet.

so.
dangerous.

beautiful
and tattered, bandit.

of the motherhood

but I have found, a sunlit
night with purpose.

and, so, my Lazarus


the forsaken.
has


forgiven.

and the depraved mantra
chants.

among the
prosperous.

live, live,

live,

she is living.
