Don't move.
If you do they will see.
Don't speak.
It only brings you dread.

My home rests atop basalt.
A lake of fire churns outside my window.
The castle walls are solid ice,
I know not how they survive the heat.

Down below in the dungeon,
my heart beats ever slowly, unnoticed.
Above the Child of Thought rests in her bed,
drafting plans of escape.

Here I sit in wait.
Twisted by the Hands of Fate.

* I wrote a similar poem in my teens some (ahem) decades back. This is a reflection of it. I don't feel this way anymore, but it is the first that came to mind. I have been working on letting go of things from that time in my life lately.

La part vivant


la vraisemblance de la respiration ;
une fraction d'Esprit ;
une carcasse qui gigote ;
une circulation visqueuse ;
une main insensible ;
un pied planté ;
une parole prolixe ;
une léthargie lourdâtre ;
un silencieux rayon de soleil
depuis une cinquantaine d'UA
fait office d'un après-midi
printanier –

pénible pénombre ;
une froideur lapidaire ;
une stérilité féconde ;
un écho d'un soupir ;
un pas dans la poussière ;
une empreinte dans la glace ;
un cœur brisé en orbite ;
une brise du vent solaire ;
un souvenir
d'un monde plus lumineux
chagrine chimériquement
la part vivant
ambulant
dans mon asile
trans-neptunien...
