Jochebed [Apr. 10th, 2006|07:04 pm]
the bullrushes swayed in the breeze
coming down from the desert
blowing acrid air into your eyes, until you cried
a river to cast the basket where you
had tenderly wrapped your joy in shrouds of whispers

within the folds of memories, you bound that sparkle in your eyes,
hoping that what you could not save
would find another heart to fill
without the scars he left when he
vanished from view

he was tearing joy from many souls that night,
murdering their hearts before their eyes,
leading Death on a rampage along those same streets
and the cries of pain his absense caused
never reached his gilded throne

and unlike Jochebed's, your basket on the water
carried your smile over the edge of the world.
