Upon the bed of fallen leaves how fair the blossoms lay,
Silver the night, and silver the streams are veiled.
In the vast solitude, retreating into the heart of wood,
Beneath the roof of a drowning sky, as our love spills fragrance in the rain.
Whispering kisses, drifting touches of your briny lips, of secrets told
known to the woods and to me.
Muffled sounds dissolve into the dim light of morn,
as shadows from the darkness are besieged.
And the leaves of gold are drowned, as my heart begins to bleed,
sundering on the thorns where I dwelt through nights silent and long.
Crimson petals float on a cloud of mist, I walk through a heavy haze,
wan and wasted, a shadow tethered to the wind.
Mayhaps you shall find me on the foaming waves, singing to the sea.
When your heart comes desiring on the wind's trail.
When love shall again spill fragrance in the rain.
For Kelly Deschler's contest : "Every Rose has it's Thorn"
