What a scandal -
In seeking love
One and true,
This ignorant heart
Knew to search
The great wide plenty,
Thinking dogged piety
Would prove single-minded
Fidelity;
However,
I cast my eyes upon it
Only to discover
Scribbled cross the veins
An embarrassing number
Of loves sought out
And greedily clasped
From the multitude.
Heart's Idolatry
A bit of a play on the theme of the One and the Many.

Someday you will see me walking,
I will be beautiful,
And your heart will stop
For one small infinitesimal drop
Of an instant,
Wherein you will know
What you have lost.
Aesthetics of the Heart
simplistic, but I liked the idea of painting a story through the lens of one moment

love's fire:
purification
> charred cinders.

love's vow:
make coal heart
a diamond
> crushed and turned
To dust and ashes.

love's trial
failed.

But now I spread
these ashes to the wind,
loving in each stranger
the love I thought
I'd find in you.

This was once a passionate heart,
I have since changed to charcoal
And thence to finest powder;
I thought it'd be gems and glitter,
but the journey of love is strange.
I am not what I was
but sometimes these transformations are necessary for true life and growth - that is they entail death, true and real, but new life grows where the old has passed away

Here's an interesting video. While I tend to think of Ayn Rand as a virtuous sociopath (if such can exist) and have some serious qualms about her ideas, I found this dialogue very thought provoking:

let your soul light with hatred
like a beacon, let its power
cut you a flaming path
on this cold empty way

but cup your hands round
the last spray of tender leaves
growing in your being

though hate swallow you whole
save at least one uncharred sprig
from the soil of your soul
Grief
I am fascinated with the choices we make and their moral value in conditions of extreme loss, grief and rage. As many of you know anger and rage are a part of grief. So while the title is 'grief' the emotion that is of ethical focus is rage. Many people think anger has no place in an ethical constitution. I would say for a large portion of the populace, it is probably more important to embrace and face one's inner rage. Rage that is held in becomes depression and self-destructive behaviors. But rage turned outward towards positive change and healthy boundaries can be salvific. Of course there is a very subtle scale between a healthy use of anger and allowing anger to take over one's soul. This poem is just one possible moment of dynamic interchange between anger and sense of self.
