A river cried God’s name in vain
As treasures spilled onto the streets from a tome
Forsaken love mocked the crimson earth
The night wore a shade of moonshine and verse.
Under green tints and shadow games
Wars had begun in the minds of men
They ate words, warm and uncut
While truant leaves churned fortunes in a cup.
Time flew in on a half-torn wing
Vanity and want shared a rummy drink
They danced among strewn letters of life
Polished by eyes behind velvet screens.
Life played love on a Thursday in spring,
Caught in a bundle of secret strings
Sepia melodies and gilded notes
Found a sail to stay afloat.
Saltwater kiss wrapped in an embrace
The moonlit sky stood witness amazed
Heartless rain drenched love to the bone
Time bargained to walk alone.
Distance built its hollow bridge
Eyes held what words never did
On a stone all promises were writ
Stardust shared its wondrous gift.
Tainted pride grew molten wings
And challenged love to foolish games
Hidden chambers then stood ajar
Brought life and love together this far.
Innocent smiles and honest ties
Have found new roads under pelican skies
Now learning to dance like forgotten stars
And always remembering who we are.
