Vera (Canto 4)A Poem by Ed
Wake, wake now my love of time,
that surpasses this ill moment,
So that this day we could be one again.
I sit here and worship you with love
even if you cast me away for other desires.
I doubt however that you would deny
For so far has our love triumphed
like the Romans conquered Europe
and us Americans have conquered America.
We have conjoined in efforts of will
a power so strong heavens weep.
The angels of highest sighs come in second
to the sighs i let out in your absence.
Fight, fight death and win life.
So that we may once again be bliss
within each others beings spread eagle.
If you came back a serpant,
i'd desire you as an angel, as you were.
For no god's can damn my admiration
that that burns from pits of hell
in demons breath or wallow fills life
that come knocking on heavens door
searching for his lovely wife.
They see my entrance as an intrusion
But i come and say now that
This love goes far beyond good and evil.
Chimes, the chimes echo in delicate waves
out by your grave of bones and simple jewelry.
The jewels glowed on your complexion.
but your aura dimmed the jewels.
How vast the light you show me even in death
like a day break after an Alaskan summer.
the view could be called brilliant
if only for the cheerful cries of the natives.
And i sit and cry aloud to the heavens
and curse the wretched beast of Hades
so that i may join you once again
and bring you joy as you brought me
before death fought immortality
