LAST CHANCE LOVER

LAST CHANCE LOVER

What means to you
that I can sing
a note
more white
than angels wings

What means to you
that I can fly
reveal
and soar
the Hubble sky

What means to you
that you will miss
the lingering tongue 
that fits 
your kiss

What means to you
I long to taste
that drop
of love
that’s gone
to waste

What means to you
we’re worlds a part--
one pithy glance
could heal
your heart

What means to you
that your next breath
may be
the bell
that tolls for death

What means to you
that in a blink
that you 
could fly
across the sea
to rectify
this flagrant waste
of 
wayward
charm
that lies 
a-waiting
in 
my 
arms
