Midnight Pearls


                               Shine, midnight pearls!
                               The smoke curls up 
                                in whirls of doom.

                                On the wet sand 
                                my own hand draws 
                                unplanned pierced hearts.

                                Deep blue-black sky
                                I play by rules
                                and sigh despair

                                to lay aside 
                                starry-eyed dreams
                                that hide a sin.

                                Shine, distant stars!
                                through guitars notes,
                                through scars of time.

                                For her first kiss
                                an abyss drains
                                all bliss from me

                                and far away
                                shadows play down
                                their spray of doubts.

                                Opaque pearls, shine!
                                On this fine night, 
                                define my north.
