Reason as the Leading Motive

A Short Poem

Posted by Jerry on October 12, 2006

This post is primarily to showcase a lovely verse written by my colleague (and cube-mate), Charlotte Baptista.

She showed me the poem this morning, which she wrote on an impulse while on a train. I read it, and loved it for its simple, yet evocative, character. The last couple lines, especially, lends a certain depth to this extremely short poem:

I let my eyes surrender to the rhythm,
feel the tears escape through an eyelid.
Knowing that morning will come.
To bleach my lust.

Charlotte Baptista
