 Phaeleh “Never Fade Away”

 

 

 

 

in so many forms
across numberless lives
have tasted your nucleus so many times
ever salubrious
studious
kind
never presumed as exclusively mine
for my only wish is to sip ruby wine from the crystal decanters that light up your eyes
trace your smile back to the origins of time
wind back the hands when the clock starts to chime
remind of your prime
reenact your heyday
for the fact is, it’s actually far and away the most flavoursome habit to perpetuate no second rate emotion can ever hope dissuade
memories are fleeting for a reason
hang uneven in the gallery of anarchy and treason
seasons pass with kind regards
yet, seldom ever do they last
i see all four in passing glance
i feel adored by great perchance
to marvel form no circumstance forsworn
to reach into the rose
expose the thorn

 

this is how one blood is born
sweetest in the dewy morn
in richened harvest
never shorn
midst rising tides of eidolon
idle hands are not our own
when fingertips are home
private lands dress finer sands
when shorelines stretch in timeless throng
for everlong
the swan song glides
is sped along to break the waves
spread across the lake
it sways
melting ice
embracing flame

 

faithfully famed for its poise and its grace
tastefully framed betwixt land and the skies
not a disgrace be mistakenly claimed
not every star has to die
in so many forms
across numberless lives
have marveled your flawless form so many times
ever salubrious
studious
kind
ever evasive of space and of time
i see the universe right in your eyes
i see fresh sunrise no longer reclined
trace your smile back to the origins of time
when you were exclusively mine
time tends to fly
as do numberless lives
in all of thine forms
i delight
and one fine day we shall remain the night
tastefully framed betwixt land and the skies
not every star has to die
