Loved One


my skeleton is in love with the moon

my zither loves her too


it was the season of betrayal

the way of all treason

when love turns to intrigue

hearts harden to stone

jealous is the head

that sits upon the throne


blamed with our passion

fastened to a shooting star

sent flying across the universe

shielding us to it’s radiance

distant to it’s heat


kindly singer

gift-wrapping worlds that float

in helium air  

an antidote to harsh notes

the daily despair

answering your voice

with a fine sad harmony

a lover’s melody

palm shade

or grave

who must choose


my skeleton is in love with the moon

my zither loves her too
