“The Story Of 900 Tears”

Stories of glorious days of youth,
times when love was brand new,
unscathed by trials and tribulations
of a dark deceitful world of hypocrisy.

The world seemed alive for the taking,
wine and roses were certainly in fashion,
journeys on black cobblestone roads,
the shadowy depths of what love was to be.

Shedding a sorrowful tear was not unusual
when true lovers were apart from the heart,
900 days since I last tasted your passion's lips,
since I last embraced your human warmth.

Compassionate things I have felt, I have seen
all are true and painfully complete my love.
Far off sweet dreams not yet to be realized,
dark life's path chosen, a dark one indeed.

All things are present soulfully this day,
all but a fair maiden's romantic love,
Tis the season of a wondrous new Spring,
yet left to breath in a Winter's cold death.
