You are herethe crucible

the crucible

By jamesaguiar - Posted on 18 March 2016

in a world without art

one is one's own masterpiece

having to stand apart

as life retreats

scarred and beaten

it has to be

that what you see

is realized

a certainty

not contrived

but an inevitability

that can't be traced

the steps forgotten


not from memory

but of discreet possibility

imagined not planned

as separate, it stands

what never could have been otherwise

the lies

of what one could have been

escaped, the eternal sin

of never having been
