a barren soul

he carried a barren and naked soul, stoic and aloof inside a chimera tune- oh, his dulcet melodies make me whole, bring back my sanity, lost inside profanity, for this life has taken a toll. a lion roars with gusty might, capturing my essence with remorse- so, sing to me a song that brings light, whisper love’s hymn, a verse soft and dim, chant a lyric of rhyme and delight. for your beauty resides in your harp, a euphony of something to make me feel- a ballad played in F-minor sharp, a grand composition, standing in a nude position, bring an aria of songs devoid of carp. an alligator’s leather is rough, course and rugged with length- just like my life has been so tough, I need a melodic line, something soft and fine, of this madness, I’ve had enough. for I am arched like a pink flamingo, crooked and curved without direction- sing me a song to make my heart grow, a poem of grace, no man can replace, I find this shame so hard to let go. when I hear your music of adoration, I am free from all iron chains- you bring me a healing sensation, with songs of devotion, filled with emotion... ...for I am captivated with appreciation.
