Now I Understand

Her whispers of "I love you"
echo from the arms of another man
bitter retreat into deceptions womb
remains the only thing I understand

for it is there consistency reigns
mere insanity becomes sound
lost in a chaotic bliss
never wanting to be found

yet I raised my hand
toward the simmering light
wondering what it would be like
to experience something so bright

sayers spoke of getting burned
warned about passionate flames of blue
such wisdom never held an ear
nor a treacherous fallacy like you

her whispers of "I love you"
echo from the arms of another man
bitter retreat into deceptions womb
remains the only thing I understand.....

Bob Shank-Oct. 7th, 2006
dedicated to the wisdom that my heart forgot
