Fraternitas (standard:poetry, 132 words)
Author: RozinanteAdded: Dec 07 2001Views/Reads: 1985/0Story vote: 0.00 (0 votes)
Youth and friendship in the early hours.

Once again we sit and talk, 

A shadow circle 

Running rings around the truth, 

Before we settle on the point and share 

The aching sighs and murmurings of youth. 

Thoughts that come without a fight 

Fill the void that lies between us 

As I peer through the haze of my regret, 

And see the melancholy joy 

That though I try I can never quite forget. 

I talk of you but mispronounce it love, 

A slip of tongue that fires 

Sparks upon the veil of my inflection. 

Though I strive for mediocrity 

With you I vow to make the one exception. 

No words escape this padded cell 

Wherein the glare of introspection, 

Fuels the slow ferment where dreams evolve, 

Before they fade in our reality 

To flee the coming dawn and quite dissolve.
