(ITS A OLD REDONE ONE)

OH DEAR

OH MY DEAR

LIFE HAS DONE

US SO

INJUSTICE

FOR FAR

TOO LONG

NOW

OH MY DEAR

OH DEAR

DEEP INSIDE

THIS FLESH

AND

BONES

LAID THE

FLICKERING FLAME

IN ALL

THE DARKNESS

ITS THAT

GOLDEN

GLOW

WARMS IN

THE ACHE

AWAY FOR

A LITTLE

WHILE

OH TO THE

COULD

HAVE BEEN

JOY

OH TO JOY

THAT HAPPINESS

IN

THE MOMENT

POURING

LIKE

LIQUID

SILVER

DOWN TO

THE QUICKENING

THE WHITE

EAGLE

AND

THEN

THE DOVE

NO LONGER

WILL

THE MIND

BE BOUND

CHAINS

HARM

EACH LINK

A MEMORY

OF THOUGHT

THE ETERNAL

CIRCLES

LINKED TOGETHER

OH DEAR

OH MY DEAR

TO THE LOST

IN THE OCEAN

THE LIQUID

BLACKNESS

FLOWS

BLINDED LOVE

OF MY PURE

OF HEART

NOT TO

HAVE

NOT TO BE

OH THE GOLDEN

YELLOW

TO THE

BLUE CORE

OF THAT WICK

MELTING

AWAY

MELTING AWAY

THE PURPLE

WAX

INTO CLUMPS

OF

NOW

SUCH

A COLD

HARDEN

SHELL

THIS EXTERIOR

OF PLACES

BEYOND

TIME

AND

SPACE

THE ONLY

LIGHT

TO THE EVER

CONSTANT

GLOW

THRU

THE DARKNESS

ON

MY SKIN

OH THAT

SWEET

HONEY

THE SWEET

HONEY

LIKE THE

MORNING

DEW

IN THE COLD

AIR

SURROUNDED

BY THE

FRESH RAIN

THE CHARM

TO NEVER

EVER

HARM

ONLY

PROTECT

FROM ALL

THAT

OH SO

TRIED

SO HARD

TO DENY

US

OH HOW

TIME FLIES

AND OH

HOW DOES

IT ALWAYS

DENY

THE LONESOME

LOVE SICK

HEART

TELL OH

TELL IT

LOUD

AND

A WAY

FROM

THE CLOUD

WILL I

FOREVER

BE

THAT NOTHING

MORE

THAN

A MEMORY

NOW

OH SO LOST

DID I FIND

YOU

OR

WAS

IT AS

ALWAYS

FAR TOO LATE

TO US

ANY GOOD

WILL

WE FIND

HOPE

AM I ONLY

TO BE

THAT FOREVER

UNFORGIVEN

DREAM

A SECRET

LOCKED

AWAY

IN THE BLOOD

OF THE WINE

ROSE

ALONE

FOREVER

MORE

OH I DARED

TO DREAM

AGAIN

OH I DARED

OH DEAR

OH MY DEAR

I SO DARED

TO NOW

I LIVE ON

AGAIN

WILL THIS

EVER REALLY

HEAL

WILL IT

EVER BE

MADE RIGHT

SO MANY

ANSWERS

THAT GOT

LEFT

UNSAID

UNDONE

AND LOST

IN THE SOULS

WE SO

LOST ALONG

THE WAY

AND KEEP US

GOING

IN OTHER WAYS

TO OUR SOULS

THAT

BE SO

SAVED

IN THE FATE

OF WHAT

IS TIME

FINALLY

IT BE

SAID AND DONE

TO OUR SIDE

AND NO SIDE

AND THE OTHER SIDE

LIKE EVERYONE

ELSE

TAKEN

DOWN

BY THE WAY

SITUATIONS

ARE

ALWAYS TO

BE DENIED

IT ACHED

AND SCREAMED

IT FELT

SO HIGH

AND SO LOW

IT STRETCHED

AND PULLED

AND YET IT

SEEMS

SO MUCH

FOR THAT

FOUR LETTER

WORD

LOVE

OH DEAR

OH MY DEAR

ALWAYS

TO REMAIN

AS I WAS

AS I AM

AND

THAT IS

ALL

THERE CAN BE

SEASONS

COME

AND

SEASONS

GO

THE STAR ROSE

ALWAYS

LEAVES

THIS

HEART

SO HELD

BY

THE DRAGON’S CLAWS

IT REMAINS

FOREVER

FROZEN

TO THAT

WHICH

WILL NEVER

BE FULFILLED

AS IT

IS IN YOURS

OH AS IT

IS IN MINE

TO NEVER

EVER HAVE

AND

TO ALWAYS

BE THERE

NEVER WILL

MY HEART

EVER LOVE

ANY OTHER

OH SO LONG AGO

THE

STATED CARDS

LAID OUT

ONE BY ONE

IN THAT PATTERN

READ BY

THE NIGHTS

LIGHTED GLOW

OH IT WAS

SO CORRECT

AND

I WAS

SO BLINDED

BY IT ALL

AFFECTED

BY THE

HIDDEN

INFLUENCES

OF THE

EVENTS

UNFOLDING

AROUND

ME

ALWAYS

SURROUNDS

THIS

HEART

OF MINE

OFFER OF

WARM HELP

AND

CREATIVE

TALENTS

SOAR

WHERE

JUDGEMENT

CALLED

AND

MONEY

EXTORTED

FALLEN

IN THE DEMANDED

EXCESSIVE

WAYS

OF THIEVES

THAT DISHONEST

DUDE

IN HIS

QUEST

FOR POWER

SO CONTROLS

IT ALL

MISUSED

THE VISIONS

TO BRING

THE

MAJOR

TRANSFORMATION

WHICH

PAVES

THE WAY

FROM

DEATH

TO REBIRTH

THAT FULL

CIRCLE

OH TO MY

FEELINGS

AND

THE

FACT

THAT THAT

DANGEROUS

WAY

TO DIVINE

GUIDANCE

FELL

SO FAR

SO FAR

OH DEAR

NOTHING

BUT BAD LUCK

DOES

THAT FORETELL

IN THE LOSS

OF WHAT

I NOW

REFUSE

TO BE

OH DEAR

OH MY DEAR

THAT SUGGESTION

FROM

PLEASURE

AND GAIETY

TO

ADJUSTING

TO REALITY

AND THE

COMPLEX

SITUATIONS

OF SUCH

A DUAL

NATURE

THAT UNYIELDING

FELLOW

I SO

ABHOR

AS

I TOO

WALKED

AWAY

LOCKED

WITHIN

YOUR

HEART

LOCKED

WITHIN

MY

HEART

FOREVER MORE

THAT

WHICH

NEVER WILL

BE

TO THAT

WHICH

COULD HAVE

BEEN

SHOULD HAVE

BEEN

A FRIENDSHIP

SO

LOST

AND TWISTED

NOW

DENIED

AS ALWAYS

LIGHTENING

COMES

MAYBE

TWICE

IN ONES LIFE

OH

DID YOU

WANT

WHAT I WANTED

AND OH

WHAT A

MISTAKE

DID WE MAKE

OUT TO THE

BREEZE

SO SILENT

GREEN

YOUR

FOREVER

STAR

ROSE

NOW I LEAVE

IT BE

OH DEAR

OH MY DEAR

THAT

PRIORITY

MAIL

THOUGHT

STAINS

HIDE

WHERE

NO MORE

LIES

LAY

AND

MY SO COLD

MOUTH

HAS

NOTHING

LEFT TO

SAY

FOR MY

HEART

IS SO GONE

NOW

INTO THAT

INVISIBLE

SPOT

RESTING

BEHIND

THE WALLS

I NOW BUILD

TO

BE

AS IT

WAS BEFORE

IN AND OUT

OF EVERYTHING

LIKE THE

BLACK FLIES

STUCK

TO THE

PAPER

SLOWLY

FADES

INTO

THE NIGHT

NO LONGER

GLOWING

BUT

EMBERS

OF DIM

SIMMER

AND

WAIT

FOREVER

MORE.
