About I'm new.

Previous Entry I'm new. Dec. 31st, 2004 @ 12:26 am Next Entry

Been listening to Radiohead for a couple years now. They are an amazing band. I'm glad to know there are others like me dedicated to good music.

Well, hope it's cool for me to post a poem.

Sweet thing, I hope I have not led you astray,

Made you think I was as right for you as the

    sun is for the day,

For the cleansing rays of the sun I certainly  

    am not.

In contrast I am rather cold and indeed I am

    not hot.

No, I am not the sun; I am a different kind of

     light,

One that’s gentle, sweet as cream and tarries

     in the night.

I am gentle like the Reaper who deals death

     with his hands so clean.

I am sweet like a poison you do not taste and

     subtly goes unseen.

Tarry in the night I do, tarry in the dark,

But there are things you do not know of me so

     listen closely: hark!

 

I.        I am not nearly as strong as you think I am, for your touch makes me feel so weak.

II.     I am not as righteous as you think I am, for your tongue can make me think things I could never speak.

III.   I am not nearly as steadfast as you think I am, for missing you makes me stagger.

IV.    I am not as gentle as you think I am, for to get to you I would wield a dagger.

 

Why is it that I say these things, tell the

     secrets of my heart to you?

It is because I am a woman, sweet thing, a

     woman trite and true,

And I am not the sun rising simply to make

     your future bright—

I am the moon, the sultry moon, a very

     different kind of light.

I am the moon, the loving moon, rising to

     make your darkest hours bright.
