|Poem about the poet Rimbaud.|
~ Soles of Wind: Rimbaud's Lament ~ by Will Had I a better beginning my ending would have been grander. Something to write down on pages of gold. . My youth I foolishly took, in my pride, as myth and fable believing all the lies. I acclaimed all visions thinking it wise; forsook all learning for great adventure; and sought mountains of gold in abysmal places. I listened to the heretic's song while pursuing idle pleasures and whiled away my youth seeking the absolute, the burning center of the heart, exploring all the hidden crevices of desire. . Blinded by a cruel beauty that led me unaware to the emptiness behind all lustrous eyes, I foolishly grabbed handfuls of dust in return for illusive love. . And in the end no profit was earned on what was spent. As well off my life a begger been, for this lament and a cool tomb are the sum of it. Tweet
