Songs of Love’s Insanity

22

I told you we were fools
With our strut of scarlet feet
I wept – for foolish games
We put each other through

Now, a spring negotiation is On
The traitor birds are whispering
A splintering of my time
To rebel against the sun

My heart is no longer glass and gold
But a petrified blossom of your scars
I told you we were fools
We lost the optimism of youth

The confidence of bravery
That risks without asking questions
I tried to love you carefully
But my insane letters and embroidered throat

Were initials of my own doom
I told you I was a fool
I do not gladly wait the years
To see you again, you made it poignantly clear
All my hope and artistry meant nothing.
