A Dagger Rests Between My RibsA dagger rests between my ribs, a knife that cuts and tears, It rips at every idle thought and all unwanted cares. It traces every dream I've seen and carves a crooked niche, The very shape my heart would take, unfettered and unleashed. It pins me to a lofty branch while winds whip round my ears, While boughs around me bend and break from wild and weighty fears. The leaves have long since fled the scene, no flowers left to boast, A nest of birds no longer deem these heights a welcome host. They've flown upon the eastern winds to shores of golden sand, Where gentle waves might wash their sins, they've sought the promised land. This dagger sits within my breast and penetrates my soul, If I took but one minute's rest I'd pay a hefty toll. No guru, mystic, priest nor king could ease my situation, For these are merely mouths that speak for self or state or station. A blade so sharp would cut my throat to spare me of that shame, And steal my breath before I spoke, lest I reveal her name. .
