Poem: That Other World


I have lived long

in that other world

 

Not in this

Not in the one I should have

 

But in that other other

world of bright meaning

heart's ease

overflowing affection

and precious and beautiful loves

 

I'm old now

That world

must go

 

And this, too,

the world that has failed me

and I it.

 

It will fade soon enough

already has begun.

And I will fade away from it.

For I'm old now

 

And the only world that matters

is that other one

The world

I only half-walked in

only half-inhabited

 

that afterlife

that soon

one day

will be all my life
