Can't take my eyes off,
Your spell-binding pearl perfect smile;
The expression in your dark eyes,
Said things beyond what words would.
Can't tear my eyes away,
From the scene in front of me now;
The bone-binding piercing pain,
Painting the most surreal picture -
Embedded in my mind, for a long time;
The unimaginable becoming reality,
You in her snow white arms,
Entwined amongst crimson red silken drapes;
It would have been easier watching,
Your un-moving form in a catacomb;
Lying cold, still and serene,
But you'd be cradled against my bosom.
Can't take my mind off this bad dream,
Of the miles and years between us;
The present needs to set me free,
Release me into the dungeon of the future.
