Time Is Past

Lovely piece

Flammeus Gladius

The Time Is Past

The time of our permission, lad, is past.
We are afraid you must apply anew.
Nothing of value has the nerve to last.
The time of our permission, lad, is past.
Yes, these things happen – and they happen fast.
We’re sorry that you never had a clue.
The time of our permission, lad, is past.
We are afraid you must apply anew.

“The Lady Has a Point” | Poems by Massey

Funny

Peter Galen Massey

The Lady Has a Point

“Well that one was happiness,” says my wife.
“Cut my throat, jump a bridge, take my life.”
You didn’t like it? “I liked it fine. It’s all the
Darkness I could leave behind.” That’s not me.
“Really?” Those words are the stone demons that show
Black angels have been cast from the temple of my soul.
“Okay sure. But if you must in the quarry of poetry toil,
How ‘bout a little more cathedral, a little less gargoyle?”
