Crimson Love



The freezing shower under a decaying moon,

The nocturnal ride back home,

A lovers thought,

A meeting of hearts.
A whisper that carried my wish and the bidding of farewell.
To kit & kin on a sojourn journey;
With hopes to meet far from now (ones again).
I will come - come I may like a blink,
To disappear with a wink.
I want you to think,
Love ain't here to sink.
Not for the world without bondage or link.

I am the Trojan Horse in your mind.
Drag me into your city of dreams;

Before the elephants come to disco.
I will drag your little imaginations;
To the open plains of the wilderness.
To TOY and dance around.
I will fling you into the heavens,
And let you, bring me the stars with crimson light.

I will look beyond till my visions blur.
Till my mind begins to wander.
Till doubt surfaces, till my breath go into deep inhale.
Till I know within -it'll pass to impact my senses no more;
 To hold or nurture, to pursue or caress.

Or to Let Go! Must I care less?

The answer is: YES.
