Last night in your eyes there swam
An ocean depth of time.
Ceaseless currents and swirling eddies
Flickered beneath the surface
Countless millennia stirred and shimmered
In the half light - half dark of our love.
And a hawk like hunger was veiled in
The shadows, as passion stirred the whole.
The smoky limitless pools that
Are your eyes were smouldering,
Aching to be released,
yet fearful of discovery, they danced.
I held you gazing in awe
At the beauty of your eyes
As the shifting light caught
Oh so briefly
Something so delicate
Oh My Lover
Oh my lover
Oh my love.
Let us swim the tides together,
Let us plumb the depths of all we are,
Let us splash and frolic in the waves.
But no castles in the air.
No Fuck that !
Oh my lover
Let us fly the skies unbounded,
Let us arch our backs against the breeze,
Let us crest the wind wave, hair out flowing.
Let us tip the treetops breathlessly
No dog in the manger shit from the past.
Oh my Lover
Let us crash the boundaries ‘shuck and jive’
Let us drink from the lip of the cup that drips
With the honeyed dew of the manna from heaven.
Let us dance through the tiptoed night
Let us sing to the highest heavens
And to the farthest reaches of hell
So that bells may ring.
No petty mealy mouthed mendacity.
Fuck that !
