A Quiet God with Loud People

Christ sacrificed

skin,

speech,

defense,

and life —

it is,

perhaps,

the least we can do

to sacrifice

our impulse

to dominate

in argument

and put

in its place

prayer.

2 Kinds of People

Since the moment

I found you,

I have only encountered

two kinds of people:

you

and those who aren’t you.

Poetry

Poetry is for the living,

but death

is what grants it meaning,

making time so fleeting

and love so precious

that even poetry

can scarcely

touch it.

Lands Over Lands

Even if you’ve never

traveled beyond borders,

if you’ve entered

the open arms of love

or eclipsed the lighted end

of despair’s underpass,

you’ve seen

the most exotic things

this life offers.

Beauty

Is something

beautiful

because it is

unexamined —

mysterious, unique, untouched —

or is it

the exploration,

the unearthing of layers,

that makes a thing so radiant?

Pain

We reject pain,

but how

that rejection

— that indominatable spirt

to thrive against loss,

creates the most

beauty!

Chaos = Interest

Do you

ever think

people

are violent

or invasive

because they don’t know

any other way

to be interesting?

-L.M.G.

Fanart: Severus Snape

Allegiance to all

Allegiant to one

The Guard of your magic

The Guard of your son

I feel your pain

In this burning mark

There’s no more beauty here

No more art in the dark

-L.M.G.
