#NationalPoetryMonth Day 16: Infinity, Divinity, Virginity

My poem for Day 16 of National Poetry Month. Take it as you will…

Infinity, Divinity, Virginity

 

Roaring against the predictable

pawing at fate’s forgone affinity

and heaven’s call in starry reign,

from infinity, divinity, virginity

 

Damaged by that careless cut

branded with an abiding stain

From infinity, divinity, virginity

and heaven’s call in starry reign

 

Scream forever against the sin

while always turns the trinity

and heaven’s call in starry reign

from infinity, divinity, virginity

 

Invisible within your skin,

injustice writ so ever plain

From infinity, divinity, virginity

and heaven’s call in starry reign

 

How will a life’s worth be measured?

In alabaster silk, paraded femininity?

And heaven’s call in starry reign

from infinity, divinity, virginity?

 

Long day shadows to hound,

infest the normalcy to feign

From infinity, divinity, virginity

and heaven’s call in starry reign

 

A vexing wraith in their machine

that guarded, faulty masculinity,

and heaven’s call in starry reign

from infinity, divinity, virginity

 

Chimera expectations, once lost

reality circles, and dies in vain

From infinity, divinity, virginity

and heaven’s call in starry reign
