Magpie Tales 248: Raveling


Bond of Union, 1956, by M. C. Escher, via Magpie Tales

No one warned us our love would be covalent, 
sometimes corrosive, often explosive
burning bright twining around hearts
built for comfort not for speed
whirling so fast making time run backwards
mirrors held up to each other reflective
refractive actinic addictive as gold
spinning tendrils so fine the pain unnoticed
until the sun burned out and we in the dark
howling with sweet misery of the raveling

  1. "...pain unnoticed until the sun burned out and we in the dark howling with sweet misery of the raveling" This is a line I'll not soon forget.

    Wow!

    1. Yes, it does. And sad as it may be, it is sometimes a necessary thing that the sun burn out. In this quantum universe, there is always hope for renewal.

    1. Is that a good sigh, or a bad sigh? ::grin::
