LYRIC MAN-CHAPTER 3
...So apart from some complicated times of road separation, this young couple was, as they say, "Living The Dream". But there was coming an unforeseen and foreboding.. long dark night. The kind of night so frought with angst and anguish that even the stars and moon hid. Before the black shadows of this terrible night passed, this happy little family would be shattered by unspeakable heartbreak. Within a season they would see their precious new born baby die and discover another young daughter had been sexually molested. Intense agony, that could not be defined or described with word's oppressed the parents like an impenetrable fog. Guilt and fear mocked them and the dreamy life they had once maintained. The writer's sweet wife became almost completely despondent.. a mere shell of herself, now only slightly resembling the fun, carefree, beauty he had known and cherished.
Finances were such that the writer still had to travel and pen glowing love songs. All while his world had completely flipped upside down.. and his treasured lover looked at him as if he were a stranger. Simultaneously, a Producer's daughter was coming on to him with a full court press. A woman, he had in the past described to his wife as.. the black widow (a black widow is a beautiful, but highly poisonous, female spider that mates and then immediately afterwards.. eats the satisfied and clueless male spider). Now, the song man was the seeming prey. Her powerfully seductive spell had been cast upon him like a spider's web.. and he was unfocused, lonely, and depressed.
The weary eyed writer of love, is trance walking toward the black widow's flat....
