The night is ghostly dark,
The moon- a pale hue,
Amidst the earth’s lost depths,
Did I wander through and through.
“What afflicts thee?”I hear you ask.
“That through the murky depths alone
When repose at thy brow must lie
You seize Luna’s nightly throne?”
A man I knew not long ago
-beauty incarnate God,
Divinest presence afore whom
All mortals appeared flawed.
Eyes were a flame in ocean’s depth
Words like manna down the throat,
His lips spilled holy water in which
I bathed under night’s cloak.
Upon my heart he pressed his own
He bared for me the unknown, unseen
He cut my wings, he let me fall,
And with his love he made me bleed.
Bleed and bleed, by and by
Drop by drop yet never die
Dies alone the man and his lies
Wingless, wounded, still I fly.
The heartless beauty I loved true
Sliced my heart, devoured then threw.
Yet until love’s lost depths I find
Will I wander through and through.
