A Poem by Sage Gabrielle

"Doubt is the heart of the matter." -- Graham Greene


I still have some rosary beads a lover long ago gave me.
He said he was cleaning a garden and found them.
A lady lending her own helping hand said they were a sign from God
and were intended for him.
He instead said
they were intended for me
and nestled them in the palms of my hands.

Although I do not believe anymore,
every time I touch them, there is a
certain energy around me.
They broke a while ago.
Maybe I was careless.
But even so,
I still feel this
certain electricity
flowing through this broken circuit,
defying the very fundamental laws
of this universe.

Hi there. Sage here. I'm 18 and soon I'll be living in the Queens area for college as a music education major in the fall. I spend most of my nights burning candles and trying to figure everything.. more..
