THINKING OF YOU
I BURST INTO COLOR
LIKE A CATHERINE WHEEL IN FULL FLIGHT
ILLUMINATING THE WINTER NIGHT.
YET YOU ARE ELSEWHERE
THE THOUGHT OF YOU AND ANOTHER
DRAINS MY VIEW TO BLACK AND WHITE
WITH NOTHING LEFT IN SIGHT
BUT SUFFERING AND BLADED MEMORIES
CUT DEEP INTO THE HISTORY OF MY HEART.
TRY TO FORGET IT ALL
BUT THE PICTURE REMAINS
A SEPIA IMAGE OF TWO IN LOVE
SOMEBOSY SHOT THE PEACEFUL DOVE
AND NOW THE PEACE IS SHATTERED
BY THE ONLY THING THAT MATTERED
(ME AND YOU)
