Just Penned!! – The Link


Mending the iron hot
I was hastily making a chain
To throw beyond the skies
To reach the heavenly plain

Pulling thick iron streaks
Cutting them for chain link
My haste crakcled with creaks
With naive selfish stink

Time fizzed as the chain grew
Haste grew as the chain grew
Striking and linking the bits
I was sinking into a dark abyss

One tamed link
Jumped off the links
Sparkled me with its glint

Every link met its other end
Seemed complete and needless be mend

With elixir of truth, brimming to surface
I kindled the blazing furnace
Threw back all the links of the chain
And put off the desire for the heavenly plain
