Tear the stars from the cloth of heaven
And burn the rest, put out the night,
This wasted world has no need of me
And tonight I need no such light.
Let fire take all, and let fire fade,
So any left to see meet no sight.
Let no word be spoken but it be prayed,
Least something of this world remain to jade.

    jade as in a gemstone?
    btw, beautiful poetry, keep it up.

    Jade as a noun can mean either the jemstone, something made of it, the gemstone’s particular shade of green, a broken-down horse, or even a coquettish woman. But as a verb it means to abuse, weary, or even in an older meaning to ridicule. The jade used at the end of the poem is definitely in the verb form, although if you so desire you can think of the title in the noun form. As typical of my style, it’s up to the reader to decide what he wants to take from the poem. Thanks for visiting (and for the encouragement).
