Listen to My Porcelain Heart by Richard Charles Stevens

Listen to Crystallize by Lindsey Stirling

my porcelain heart

weeps the quicksilver tears

of all whispered years past

breathed anew

it is midnight in the garden

of unimagined boundary

while all about me

dying petals bloom

the gypsy winds sway

within which we display

every colour and shade

seen anew

with the faith of the blind

undeniable grace

sweet persuasion to marvel the view

blushing lips vermilion

glance fingertips familiar

each contour of our smiles

perceived anew

within the pavilion of dream

we are seen

thus belief in each season renews

the clouds are our wings

shooting stars our earrings

as we dress to impress sight anew

caressing the vestures

of both sun and moon

while all about us

dying petals bloom

thriving as we crystallize

each teardrop wept of wistful eyes

at sheer drop

yet in earshot of sincere lot overdue

the whispers of ellipsis

cast a light through life’s eclipses

and prefixes true to blue implied resume

two astral bodies

one flesh

breathed anew

no malice or hurts

just extravagant worlds

to explore as our pores gape

to savour the taste

of two porcelain hearts

in full bloom

all about us

dying petals bloom

wherefrom arises the perfume

of bygone lives revived

revitalized to muse on proven idolize accrued

from weeping sighted eyes for two

required the keep of but one heart

to beat its truth

my porcelain heart

weeps the quicksilver tears

of all whispered years past

breathed anew

it is midnight in the garden

of unimagined boundary

while all about me

dying petals bloom
