Fall Skies

The bell of the high church tower
Rings every hour
The sound echoes with power
As in the skies shooting stars shower

Beyond the castle wall
There is suffering of a lonely soul
The chestnuts fall like hail this fall
And leaves autumn paints in colors beyond all control

The young man was riding the road map did chart
But on the way there he got shot with a poison arrow through his heart
His father was to be next baron but political rivals decided to get rid of upstart
To send a message they killed his son by paying off the local blackheart

In the churchyard his love waited patiently
But meeting between them was not to be
Unsure why breaking the promise was he
She knew that their togetherness was destiny

Her lips were inviting crimson red
But her deep eyes were sad after tears they began to shed
When she found out that her love was dead
She lost her head

She prayed to the God to bring her love back
She begged the God until of time she lost track
Trying to pierce nothingness with her eyes she stared into black
But what is once gone from this world it cannot backtrack

As she looked at the cross she begged first then threatened with violence
But in return she heard only silence
The cross was made of gold showing its brilliance
But yield no answer to her grievance 

When she talked to the priest he would tell
That if she continued to be angry she would go to hell
Since he was on payroll of political party he would also tell
That her lover would go to hell as well

First furious then crying of tears sea
Then she thought that maybe that was her destiny
Then to grant her wish heavens would agree
But rather then bring the love back they told her to look at world’s beauty

The reason was so it she would not forget when she ventured to the skies
Beyond second place where the out world lies
For the Gods joined the couple together not where soul goes when it dies
But rather to final fundamental place to be the king and queen of the very skies

The portal to the seventh skies
Was through the girl’s enchanting deep eyes
The beauty that never dies
The abyss of wonder and the gate to highest heaven in those eyes would arise
