“Moments of Delight”

“Moments of Delight”

The saddest thing

is never sadness

but a lie cloaked in positives

for we: destitute

do too know moments of delight

there are two moments of delight

in these moments of delight

flashing in the clutch of candle flame

to put you out

in brown leather riding gloves

the horses catch the firelight

and the carvings

of our mahogany resting stead

did steer us far away from another dread

did save us instead

and let us know

moments of delight once more

in firelight flicker

the candles come and gone

but we love dawn in our resting pieces

numb moments of delight once more.
