  • Didn't I tell you, what I believe... Did somebody say that....that love like that won't last? Didn't I give you all that I got to, give baby?


Yin and Yang

Night and Day

The Heat of Summer, the Cool of Fall

The Cardinal, The Adaptable

The Passion of Water, The Sensual Embrace of the Earth

Bound and Free, enraptured and denied

Who in secret, secret lips confer affections; gives succor and life to limbs withered without touch

So separated; a microcosm of Life and Eternity, separated by The Void are their hearts

Taken, filled and blest

With rosy endowments showering The Lunar Child

Mercurial Nature set aside, all redoubts shattered for affection 

Waiting, steady, clinging to every breath

As if it were the last

Shaken, desires not lost, but trepidation causes flight in face of truth

For before the foundation of the world

Was the ordained pair meant

and in secret, it rumbles the storming night sky, the beating of the heart

and of souls phyiscally linked, and yet 

Carefully divided, that the mind is driven to insanity for reality is oft so cruel

the story is told like a rising crescendo of the pianoforte

consciously considering careful eyes that might betray

Their secret, the secret liturgy

The Communion of souls and The blasphemous shell

Forgotten, and  yet recalled

only by whose eyes, in secret

The secrets of two whose secret words charm

and by one's secret lips confess exultation

Through the probing of another


Night and Day

They are bound

Summer and Fall

They are free


And yet, enslaved by the carnality that betrays them...

The soul unfillful shall die, and know an emptiness

For all their vanity, shall Night never come 

They are lost to time for the memory


But never again to know the answer
