Venus is blind

to those who fall

to the desires of

petty misfortune

and wants of lost opportunity.

To them she turns from

for betrayal of her truth

those who do not understand

to breathe

when the water she takes from their lungs.

Because they kick and thrash

never learning to let go,

feeling so deeply

hearts skipping to the beat of a hummingbird

while others pull themselves up

and with calm faces and understanding

walk to the shores again

feeling the pearl sands melt

and the warm sun saving them

letting those poor souls

who have been castaway

to emotion uninspired

by principle, history, friendship, wisdom, or devotion

but only by a passionate art of low self esteem

that we have all felt

which keeps cold muscles in motion




that we have all drowned before

and that it is a choice
