there is nothing for the taking.
sharing is all there is to staying the night.
I see you, and am forsaking
all the others, this seems so perfect and right.

I am not one
to fall out of love
you fit like a glove
my heart is won.

dreams in colours that tumble down.
rain that floods the tears and fears that I have known.
tender madness consumes, I drown
in all the sacred sins I've yet to atone.

I am not one
to fall out of love
you fit like a glove
my heart is won.

  • Mood: dA Love
I shall surrender worlds unimagined.
Abdicate my throne and atone my sins
to be within your grace, to be the wind
in a desert of barren bones that pins
the bravest and the boldest to the ground.
We are flesh and blood and the arabesque
in visions from Poe and Lovecraft, each sound
echoing in chilled depths of souls, grotesque
with the malformations we are heir to.
Affection and desire, the live wire
that grounds us to the beauty we are due,
letting slip flip platitudes of desire.
There is truth in my eloquence, more pure
than any spring of deep earth! Beauty sure!


William F. DeVault.  all rights reserved.
Invite me now in, into your tender garden,
where rare and unique beauty is to be revealed.
Flowers, leaves, fragrance like honeysuckle, jasmine,
all the sounds of the soft rain of beauty unsealed.
Not requiring, but desiring, a cautious hand,
sturdy plow to help ensure tis not overwhelmed
by vagrant vagaries of intention unplanned.
My fine fae lady, I am not unacquainted
with the rituals of your sprouts, needing the care
of an empathetic gardener, understanding
the necessity of an earnest heart to bear
a sustained effort, your approval demanding
as I press to your beds and lay root where best
to make grow what your heart requires to be impressed.

cold fall the petals of the sky upon the earth, the flowers die,
the seasons change their garb and dance along.
I'll capture her with barest trace; her voice, her face, her lethal grace,
in rhyme, in thought, and this small tribute song.

she knows me best who know me least, makes bread and fishes into feast
and understands the essence of my art.
her form is fair beyond the norm and to her side the suitors swarm
and I have but my distant words, for my part.

haphazard though my tune may be my words are honest and she can see
my gentle hands pluck out my plaintive tune.
I woo with all that she'll hold and have and offer all and more by halve
in hopes of turning winter into June.

I'm a poet. Ronin for now, making my way in the world. I don't write poetry. I don't do poetry. I coexist with it, some have even suggested I am poetry.

I can live with that. I have to. Because it is true. And that is what poetry is: Truth.
