The Shrine | labelledamesansmerci's Blog


THERE is no lord within my heart, Left silent as an empty shrine Where rose and myrtle intertwine, Within a place apart.

 

No god is there of carven stone To watch with still approving eyes My thoughts like steady incense rise; I dream and weep alone.

 

But if I keep my altar fair, Some morning I shall lift my head From roses deftly garlanded To find the god is there.

wow, not knowing, and unsure, current thinking one way,
but not to an absolute degree, knowing what you want but residing that truth is different from a want.

That may not be what you were saying, correct me if otherwise, it's how I feel and what I see when I read this. So few words get's to the point. Very nice. Even your subtle things, like a lowercase "god" shows a current view, but the sentence constructed around it is in hopes to find one.
