Please, my sweet, donít look into the sun
As it makes us all seem so frighteningly small;
Stare straight ahead-
The sheets are turned back on the bed,
And those voices you hear are just the silly
Drunk angels who live upstairs-
Donít pay them any mind.

We live in a universe of circles, deep purple
Excess of kings and queens held in check by
The turning of tides. Darling, quietly bide
Your time while I am gone: Iíll hear you
Breathing inside my own four walls.

Youíre sighing
In the moonlight, but donít go crying over a
Foolish fool like me. These rolling spheres,
They make it back to where they start; weíll never be
Apart, as the soul is not measured in miles.

this is a very cool poem and very well written...perfect imagery...
great read, truly
take care, jm

 Well the sun sets gently on your shoulders
And it makes me want to touch you there.
And the light in your eyes makes me feel
Like there's something much better out there
Something kind...
And I know someday I might be looking around
Trying to find some purpose
Well purpose it can't be that hard to find
As long as I've got the wind...
The wind and your love to carry me.
