Amnesia “Ecstasy”

 

 

 

 

Whether pleasure or pain
We are feeling
With all deference paid
Clad in leather and lace
Boarding emigrant train
To revealing

 

Through the desolate planes
With a head full of steam
In the clouds
There is famed
A most elegant dream
Where pure love profound
Is the resident theme
Gowned in pre-eminent gene

 

Bedecked in the jewels
Borne of kings and of queens
With the eyes of the skies and the thighs of the seas
The reprisal of lives
Time and space in-between
Each cycle in hindsight foreseen

 

Through the never
Ever after
From the floorboards to rafters and farther hereafter
A masterful scene
Flirting no more with disastrous fatigue
For the air that we breathe
Is as fair as bare trees
While the leaves at our feet
Tease the zealous sea breeze
Whispering of secrets in their keep

 

Both sun and the moon
Are attuned to the chords
Gone too soon they may be
But they come back to wed beneath pebble-strewn shores
Weathered not by remorse
Tethered not oblique course
Face to face
They embrace
While the stars give them away
No longer so crudely divorced

 

From exclusive source
We are feeling
Whether pleasure or pain
With all deference paid
Clad in leather and lace
Boarding emigrant train
To revealing
Through the desolate planes
Sporting head full of steam
In the clouds
We live out
A most elegant dream
The reprisal of lives
Time and space in-between
That of flawless devout
Borne of kings and of queens
Stealing home by the rosé skin on our knees
Every feeling we’re revealing
We are seen
