'Listen' has the exact same letters as 'Silent'. Coincidence?

Batter My Heart by John Donne




Batter my heart, three-person'd God, for you
As yet but knock, breathe, shine, and seek to mend;
That I may rise and stand, o'erthrow me, and bend
Your force to break, blow, burn, and make me new.
I, like an usurp'd town to'another due,
Labor to'admit you, but oh, to no end;
Reason, your viceroy in me, me should defend,
But is captiv'd, and proves weak or untrue.
Yet dearly'I love you, and would be lov'd fain,
But am betroth'd unto your enemy;
Divorce me,'untie or break that knot again,
Take me to you, imprison me, for I,
Except you'enthrall me, never shall be free,
Nor ever chaste, except you ravish me.

My heart’s passion beats red in contrail wisps.

Life’s colors descend and leave my spirit blue.

      

 Cold gray clouds signal the coming storm.

A black void of silence transcends my soul.

 

 Wishes sparkle as starlight on the heavens.

Dreams reflect from a golden lunar smile.

 

 Love returned lifts me as doves at the dawn.

Passion’s crimson tide paints the morning sky!

  

Hope is again held high in brilliant light.

Blue?  Only the flowers in a distant meadow.

 

 My faith is strengthened, my spirit restored!

Life’s passion flows strong, you at my side!

What Right Have I by Emilie Autumn

What right have I?
You are not mine
Nor will you ever be
I need not try
To read your sign
You dont belong to me
I should not care
How you behave
What difference does it make?
Perhaps someday
You will grow brave
And from this sleep awake
But when you do
It will not then
Be caused by what I say
But by one who
Like other men
Holds you within her sway
And as I claim
No place within
The life you choose to live
Ill stay the same
As I have been
And all your faults forgive
Perhaps I own
The privileged place
For worry I need not
I may condone
Reprove with grace
And still remain unfraught
With jealousies
And petty cares
And all that love demands
So as you please
Ill save my prayers
And better use my hands
But why all this?
As I have said
It matters not to me
What right have I?
You are not mine
Nor will you ever be
