In long days passed
Before if only sighs 
Could spear the skies
And bounce about the atmosphere,
Returning to earth like great comets
To carve rivers and gorges,
 
Love was pure--not forbidden:
Not a fatal risk
 
You loved the one your heart pulled you to
The one you wanted--body, soul, spirit
 
Disapproving glares
And wagging tongues
Made us throw our heads back with laughter!
 
You loved the one you wanted
 
Monolithic mountain ranges
Are the only remains:
Silent monuments
To strength that will never cease
 
Bone-chilling screams resound
As the Seas fill with pain--
There are no more tears to cry
 
The body, once shrine to the soul
Is now a temple of errors....
 
Lift your glass to the heavens--
Bow your head for the benediction
 
This good earth has slowed to a waltz,
And soon will revolve no more
 (not even to pagan music)
 

Chanteuse
