Immortality – NaPoWriMo #11

So, till the judgment that yourself arise,
You live in this, and dwell in lover’s eyes.“-Shakespeare, Sonnet 55

Wending away from the norm,

Sealed in solitude, sly stubborn mule,
styled in revile but gauged in the rank and file piled in a perilous upbringing,
fortunate in freedom, unfathomable in flattery,
stocked in the internal and the question, “what is wrong with me?”

“What hath thou brought for me?” Asks a deity that craves attention,
which is nothing more than wisps of smoke upon a moment’s odd reflection;
an a suspect’s introspection at the unction occultly occupying
the lines that she had once denied but prized on a cloudy night’s convention.
