LIES THE CRYSTAL BALL Collaboration
Woman of your dreams, someone just like me,
with brunette hair and emerald eyes - lies
the crystal ball, a princess no doubt, like Diana,
will stun and bait, kick against your heart - run
after her wavy hair, her slim bodacious frame.
Escape from me to her amidst the falling snow
but be quick to see the polished apple that she bit.
Reader of the stars, they fall with angel wings
and you’ll be dead before your two lips meet.
Someone just like me, stared at you from afar.
Far off eyes stare at a perfect night, ebonite cold,
missing sweet rose petals spread on a lover’s bed.
