Bliss Be Quick

Bliss be quick I'm fading fast toward the sunset's shadowed grasp Like a smoking candlewick Like our conversations past Bliss don't switch your gears and leave the moon to tend me as I grieve She has no real warmth to give She can't show me how to live Bliss settle in and make your home please promise me you'll never roam Scroll out a list of things to do to nurture my weak fortitude like stringing beads of glassy ink and rolling out thoughts to make one think or searching the sky for green parakeets sitting on phone lines, lined up neat Crushing up coconuts, drinking the juice Flying for miles to declare a truce Watching the seeds of the sweat peas grow or dipping my feet in the ocean's flow. Bliss I'm lost unless you're with me I get caught in the solitude frenzy Where there's no one to bounce things off of Where the moon laughs her cooling head off Bliss be kind to this weak frame and personalize me with your name I'll live up to your expectations Drop your guard and your reservations Bliss you are my mirror image I won't let my eyes be timid Shine my skin and temper my glow for, Bliss, you do these things bestow...
