Seeing you there marked a blessed event
Akin to magical when first time eyes met.

taking unabashed pleasure...
Yesterday's Fragile Truth

blocking love’s magic before it could start.
And depression's quagmire entraps your soul

of a city's cacophony of sound.

Their bright costumes conceal sin and strife
and beneath them deception does dwell.
Their lines are a demon...

that even the blind sees the beauty, for you anoint with your sight.

The pungence of heartbreak swelters
in the tangled dreadlocks of love-lies-bleeding
Take me somewhere exotic
to breathe not the foul aroma
of disappointment and despair
Show me fields laced with...

Can you see the sun is shining down
On Sunday Morning, on Sunday morning
Can you feel the rain upon the ground
On Sunday Morning, on...
freedom, growth, imagery, journey,
My mind has wings and wants to fly
into galaxies where stars streak.
Aloft on whispers and a sigh
a hint of stardust on my cheek.

desire, dream, imagery, longing,
Dusk falls quickly on cerulean skies
