I Am Sunken (revision 1)


That this could all be levelled at me.

As too my soul should be left so,

As to be,

Vacuous and bereft.

That circumstances have

Haunted my watch far

Into my Cullin core.

And not being vengeful

Has thrust me

Justly too,

Away from this arrow Art.

Which once

Did make of me substance

And Spirit

In a pure vial.

Then distilled me

To purify.

Then placed me preciously

At the height of every expectation.

I am sorry so to be such

As is an exhibit of disappointment.

So as I returned to my 7th depth,

My likeliest state,

I know and accept my situation,

Which is that I am sunken.
