A belated and utterly meaningless poem for yesterday. I actually wrote all but the last stanza a while ago, but anyway. Hope it diverts from the oversolemnity (Is that a word? - Ed.) of everyday real life.

Athviaro.

Lines to Myself; or, a tale of less-than-epic proportions

The sky was never so blue,
The moon never quite so white,
As here, on my back, on the grass,
In the crisp Valentine’s light.

The moon in the sky in the daytime?
I was confused at first,
But it’s fairly common, round this time of year,
So I blinked and returned to my verse.

Yesterday I was wearing black tie;
Cummerbund, silk hankie and all.
If you’re not really interested I’ll not be offended -
On your way out please shut the door.

Anyway, black tie aside, and leaving my watch
On the desk because time wastes itself,
I lie here and watch as the clouds scuttle past,
And I sigh and I say to myself:

“Stop doing poems, you jester,
You’ve enough on your plate as it is
Without rhythm and rhyme
And - is that the time?

I’m sorry, got to go, catch you later.”
And with that I was gone
 - Don’t ask me how -
And left with an empty mind.

I’m sorry I’ve bored you
All I wanted to say
Are four little words:
Happy Valan’s Kind Day!


And in the spirit of Rayne:

Insanity
Because making sense is boring.

"There is much misjudgment in the world. Now, I knew you for a unicorn when I first saw you, and I know that I am your friend. Yet you take me for a clown, or a clod, or a betrayer, and so I must be if you see me so. The magic on you is only magic and will vanish as soon as you are free, but the enchantment of error that you put on me I must wear forever in your eyes. We are not always what we seem..." -Schmendrick the Magician, The Last Unicorn

*Catches the kiss, folds it neatly, and tucks it in his breast pocket*

I'm overwhelmed you like it, the pair of you. There are times when I make even less sense than usual and this was one of them, so I'm glad it met with humour at the very least.

Ath.
