She wears her love just like a mask
as brittle as candy
She hides her face from all who ask
how she holds her art ~
In a high up zenith
dark summer ending

The burning of love’s desires smears my eyes
with impalpable kisses
Darkened images fill my mind
with smoke of another time ~
Chimerical it seems to me
impossible dreams to wade in

She spreads her candyfloss hands
on a sacrificial stake
She sticks her eyes hard and fast
faking out countless pasts ~
And won’t bat her false eyelashes
at hell fires of burning desires

Oh yeah . . .

Oh . . .

Though I may regret having worn my
sacrificial mask like love
She states her art clear and bold
and well designed to hold ~
Onto darkened images of burning desires
in a dark summer ending


from Learning to See, released April 18, 2011
