the curse of a sentimental heart & a skeptical mind

You

You, the imperturbable,
you, the advocate of
rectilinearity and clarity,
have embraced my
multifaceted brokenness.

And
I, of the lost faith,
I, the unbeliever,
born from contradictions
and scepticism,
pray for catharsis.

Elegance

In the flickering light of candles
the quill glides over parchment
in long, graceful strokes
unleashing words of an elegance
long lost,
composing prose that emanates
the fragrance of centuries
long gone.

Cotton Candy

I sense the sweetness
floating
through your mind
in white cotton candy clouds.
I cast my net
to catch and keep
those delicious saccharine flakes.

I detect the sentiment
threading
through your thoughts
with tender caressing strands.
I catch the ends,
unravel the knots and keep
those delicate silken bonds.
