Play an eternity

Come …
Come stealthily
Into the painful crevices
Of my wanton heart
Here, I am done away –
A war with myself

Play you by
The longest tune ever
To gauge me weightless
The soul of my bidden love
And keep me guessing –
The trudge of my worn-out feet

Come …
Come resurrected
On a heap of my pyre
Shrugging off my wrongful deeds
And play an eternity
Beyond the bounds of life and death

    A powerful rhetoric ‘ A war with myself’, reminding of W. B. Yeats’ ” Sailing to Byzantium “.
