d i v i n e


so you
held me by
the strings of a world
which really
was never mine,

i learnt the steps
to the dance
of appearances
but the movements so
were never mine,

you borrowed
songs of fake smiles
i sang the notes
but the voice you heard
was never really mine,

you valued colors
in a Sotheby’s catalogue
but ignored
the word-art
that was mine,

so i set free
my soul
from the bondages of yore
and every breath now
somehow feels divine.
