Light Wings and Gossamer Black

"Light Wings and Gossamer Black" tears of all the lost years ghosts' pearls falling softly gossamer black caressing your sad heart’s crimson its bleeding broken beautiful cracks a small heaven winks back some of your light wings the other side reflects some of your light wings a small heaven winks back light wings sent for unholy hosts Inside me there is always you wormwood wisdom the killing of time gliding praying for aphids on the tar plain view some of your light wings Blue Silver, Silver Blue Light Wings for pearls falling into your shining pools spinning softly gossamer black walking forever towards you through silver blue (LadyLabyrinth / 2020) "My Favourite Ghosts" / Bianca Strega "...Terror made me cruel" Wuthering Heights, Bronte “The people you love become ghosts inside of you, and like this you keep them alive.” "The ghosts of things that never happened are worse than the ghosts of things that did.” "Ourself, behind ourself concealed, Should startle most; Assassin, hid in our apartment, Be horror's least." Emily Dickenson Gossamer adj. Gossamer is something super fine and delicate – like a spider web or the material of a wedding veil. The original gossamer, from which these meanings come from, is the fine, filmy substance spiders excret to weave their webs. A dress can be gossamer-like, if its fabric is so sheer as to be see-through, or almost. Blue Silver "This is why Simon wrote the line "Sing Blue Silver" in lyrics for the song, "The Chauffer": as a child he read a book about time travel, and in it said that allegedly, people who are coming back from a trip in time see blue silver. It adds to the song's supernatural element." Aphids.
