Androgyny Confounds

A Garret Poet

Androgyny Confounds
Form: Loose Sapphic

What is to say of my androgynous state,
the son that never was born in blissful joy
or the maiden daughter unblessed by beauty
just where should I be?

I see balance with nature's most sacred act
that gave me life so I may learn who I am,
from their love, the act of he and she, the rose
with a boyish smile.

Yet if she should hold me close and kiss the smile
my Sapphic heart would be dared to quench her thirst
as molten femininity embraces
the girl that I am.

Labels of identity fail to touch the truth
or justify the woman that breathes in me
mere titles cannot express lores of passion
as I understand

Lovers’ Journey

A Garret Poet

Lovers’ Journey
Form: Keats’ Sonnet

The Sapphic flame that burns inside my heart
when love begins to melt my solitude
as moonlit eyes invite a longer gaze.
My senses flourish here in passion’s art
as feminine echoes invoke the mood
that soothes the soul with serenity’s song.
As lovers journey through life’s misty haze
my companion as shadows drift apart
so, destinies revealed in love conclude.
For it is in those far-off distant days
we find that love is where we still belong
a miracle that rises o’er the clouds.
with years that pass we see that love is strong
as closeness binds but never overcrowds
