Diamante – Peace/War

Calm and collected
Reasonable, respectable, reliable
Can be easily broken, hard to repair
Horrible, harrowing, hateful
Divisive and dark


Sonnet: This House

In this house in which I have never stayed
I am surrounded by my possessions
Each in their time my current obsessions
The focus I gave them I may have prayed

With the toys and objects with which I played
Imagination was my profession
The quelling of my lonely confession
The experience of which I am made.

I found my own company hard to keep
Little chance to discuss anything real
Began to repress, refusing to weep
Finding I have forgotten how to feel

And in this house I cannot be contained
Yet for a time, I know I must remain.
