Sublime Triviality*~by Constancio Sulapas Asumen Jr



CDLX ~> Sublime Triviality*

CDLX ~> Sublime Triviality*
(Opus460 ~> Sublime Triviality)
The aftertaste of every stolen kiss
Whether pre-planned or by inadvertence;
Lingers a piece like fragments of a tease
Mellowed with the pangs of sweet insolence,
You swallowed down in deafening silence:
The trivial nature of what is sublime
Had proven to endure in every clime!
Not all recurring dreams a nightmare make;
They all depend on schemes behind the door.
Nor all the subtleties of give and take
Redeem the goodwill of your creditor;
Whose umbrage you had chosen to ignore:
Platitudinous slurs on pabulum
Are hardly wont to swing the pendulum!
When promises were made to be broken,
You’d be spoiling for one twilight dawning;
You take stock of all you had forsaken
Cutting your loses before complaining
Of someone cheating from the beginning:
The trivial essence of most realms sublime
Filters its presence through the whims of time!
