Illuse he, a wall to see

Yonder forth and hither

                                                  Muraled   as if to see not a wall
                                                  But the reflections of a meadow

Fancifull creatures of once his domain

                                                                                             Only ghosts he let remain

A whimsical maiden                          a guardian of heart                         Neutral for all


Till death does he part 

Cursed his life, denominated by one


                                                  by choice 

                                                                                              But his freedom won 

Alone in his castle, cluttered and dark

                                   Amongst his gadgets                      he's made his mark 

Scurry he to the perch above

                                                               Doves he shews to carry love 

Presence and presents he soothes his soul
To the Dark ones now part of the fold

To tell the story, Tis I

                                                                                The Dark ones Gemini

His knight in shining armor, dust pan and broom

To those out there with Questions that loom

May you see only Goodness,
truths have there place
But a guarded heart shouldn't fall from grace

    The essence of that guarded heart still lingers, as a sweet aftertaste from a sweet disposition. In it I find empowerment, so that I may have a heart like that someday,and remembrance all the while. I echo the gratitude of my peers, thank you indeed Mike. Scholar
