Wet Shadows

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

How will life soar without another heart?

As this lonely one flies over Manhattan Park

Love of orange seizes winter leaves from fall

In flight of his duty no answer calls

The perfect life sound can never begin

As the albatross flies over empty oceans

Forever in flight weakens his load

Where shall love land on wings so alone

On islands of stink in the white seagull snow?

Even for love he has chosen no!


He chose the painful harp

Chose pride over heart

The end before the start

Choosing winter before the fall

Oh what a questionable call

This unnamed unnatural sin

Against the strongest

Against the coldest wind

As mating oceans fill to brim

The albatross can only skim

Love it seems weighs its most

When love is a heavy ghost

Wet shadows oceans and wind

Will now survive even less of him
