Through The Glass Darkly


We were like soldiers
Marching on
It is time to move on now
On and on and on and on
Night after night
nightmares of Rome
Burning around us
As we moved on
On and on and on and on
Until someone remembered
What we were fighting for
And we moved on
We were friends whose paths crossed
And disappeared in silence
We were poems I never understood
We loved being pretentious
I never really told you how fake I felt
I just wanted the world to be about more than this
I wanted us to be about more than
Images on canvas
Beautiful nonsense
I will remember you as
An acquaintance
That moved away

One thought on “Time to move on

    wow… this is a very deep and wonderful poem. There are so many beautiful lines.
    I felt this poem and feel still that I know this experience in some visceral way. thank you for it
