Walking through the Forest of my dreams
I stumbled across this beautiful song,
The melody carved my heart and transcended
Into the depths of memories where I belong.
In my haste to surround me with this strange music
I forgot the bliss the thorns gave me
As I hurried barefoot across the forest floor , the music
Resonated in the broken heart which had ceased to be…
The forest cleared and I could see,
The strange blue fire illuminating my darkness,
Burning like the brilliant million stars
From the Starry skies of my Dreamscapes.
And I saw the solitary Moth
Dancing around the fire,
Flapping the wings of silk black death
And the flames lapping around it with desire
As they circled around each other like lovers
The symphony of bliss weaved the webs of ecstasy
Lovers they were of centuries and millenias
Sublime passion igniting their fantasy
For when the Moth gave in and it kissed the fire
It never denied its own true nature
Singeing the black silk wings it liberated the being
From its inevitable mortal desire.
And I sat wondering was this melancholic
Or is it very poetic of romance
To die in your Lover’s loving embrace
Blissfully leaving the realm of existence.
