Candle Litted Prairies

As a candle litted love, destined a short youth
A butterfly floats the breeze upon the prairies
O. I know it scouts the fields in vain sleuth
Drinking the nectars from berries to berries

The story of my foolish youth, told in truth
Hornet stinging for juice sweetest cherries
Holding to threads of life tooth by tooth
Gliding a distance measured in taste and varies

Boasting the broken hearts in my wake
Vulture fallen upon the gentle fairies
If I only knew the sounds of lovers ache
A nightmare graves the soul dark paries

O. I Lured the angels with my love serenade
And rowed the maidens in gondoliers wherries
How could I've known it's a fools trade
Her loving scent for all the earth clary's

O. She cried then but I cried and crying since
Her departing, a heavy weight my heart carries
How could a fool I am be mistaken for a prince
Or loved by sweetest Cherry in a sea of cherries

O. I Picture her leap to her end, in slow moving frames
As the angels hovered her soul chanting Hail Marys
Her darkness came too soon floating my fading flames
As a butterfly floats upon the candle litted prairies

About this poem

The foolish youth we all dwelled its vanity and raced through it scoring selfish gains blinded to the consequences we caused on those loved ones and oneself
