  • Ego

    My ego you have crafted
    Hand carved
    With weavings so delicate and perfect
    Written With a pen so fine
    Of infinite moments in time
    Of conversations
    Mixed with tinted temperment
    Painted with the science
    Of astrology, chronology
    And biology
    So perfect is each moment
    That I can only bless myself
    As your chariot
    A container of dreams
    And cosmic science experiments
    Loving you
    Wishing for you
    As only “I” can.
