MY OATH




I would promise you the moon
But it is not mine to present…
I will paint it with words of love
And offer a personal creation.
Fragrant flowers I could bring
But tomorrow’s withers hold no spark
Chocolate kisses in a three-lock box
But they will melt, as the ending elements.
Bands of gold and silver, nor diamonds
Prove radiant on a cloudy day.
But I can make water dance a waltz
And bring a smile to your heart
Instead of all the riches known
I bring to you the unknown
Making an oath to stand with you forever…
…until the stars fall from your eyes…

  2. I miss my inspiration. Truly. My heart aches to hear her whispers and feel her fingers embark on a chaotic ritual to form with mine as we dance...
    My words were misunderstood. I will spend the rest of my life in a well of sadness for my failure to keep my Muse as enchanted as I am enraptured by her.
    I took her silence and her post "Don't interrupt me while I am ignoring you," as a hint to leave her be until she contacted me.

    THE MOODY BLUES - NIGHTS IN WHITE SATIN

    Nights in white satin, never reaching the end,
    Letters I've written, never meaning to send.
    Beauty I'd always missed with these eyes before.
    Just what the truth is, I can't say anymore.
    'Cos I love you, yes I love you, oh how I love you.
    Gazing at people, some hand in hand,
    Just what I'm going through they can't understand.
    Some try to tell me, thoughts they cannot defend,
    Just what you want to be, you will be in the end.

    And I love you, yes I love you,
    Oh how I love you, oh how I love you.

    Nights in white satin, never reaching the end,
    Letters I've written, never meaning to send.
    Beauty I've always missed, with these eyes before.
    Just what the truth is, I can't say anymore.

    'Cos I love you, yes I love you,
    Oh how I love you, oh how I love you.
    'Cos I love you, yes I love you,
    Oh how I love you, oh how I love you.

    Breath deep
    The gathering gloom
    Watch lights fade
    From every room
    Bedsitter people
    Look back and lament
    Another day's useless
    Energy spent

    Impassioned lovers
    Wrestle as one
    Lonely man cries for love
    And has none
    New mother picks up
    And suckles her son
    Senior citizens
    Wish they were young

    Cold hearted orb
    That rules the night
    Removes the colours
    From our sight
    Red is gray and
    Yellow white
    But we decide
    Which is right
    And
    Which is an Illusion
