Magi Three

i give to watch the sunrise
i give to feel the rain
i give to flow inside of faith
i give to master pain

i give to be incendiary
i give to offer dust
i give to make the biscuit bounce
i give to conquer lust

i give for every nightmare earned
i give for every knuckle spurned
i give for all that takes it back
for every pared and bartered lack ….

and when i’m done
and see entropy through
i give to mark my time with you

where each shall hold its given place
and dawns are not what hopes erase

to found and make the daylight MINE
i take and live on borrowed time

i take to understand the cruel
i take to finish as its tool
to stream and gleam to understand
i take and measure every man

i take the thoughts and run them west
to where the east won’t find this test
i take while silence holds aspects torn

as other gifts to planes are born

  1. oh thanks! ….. it’s so easy for me to rhyme, that the greater challenge is to NOT — or to at least stagger the matching vowel sounds. seriously …. could be like one of those weirdos that can carry on conversations in verse.

    when i proof read writing like in my comments or in letters i write to family — i have to edit them to NOT rhyme! lol …. which if i’m tired i won’t catch them and it’s sort of embarrassing.
