out of this world

One to love

I am still the one to love.

Though the eyes may seep

and the tears may kiss the dust you tread.

Even when the mountains and oceans rebel

 against their very source

and the birds sing doleful tunes

and the trees cower in fear as the wind, anger vents,

Swallowing all that crosses her path.


I am still the one to love.

Though the heart may weep

Sanguinary tears from a heart torn to shreds

Every heart beat a ringing bell

Pulling its strings with vengeful force

Heart shape becomes a lune

Its very fabric bitterly rent

Bellowing as it comes apart.


I am still the one to love.

Though your pain may run so deep

Your heart warring with your head

Do not fret, all shall be well

As you navigate the forbidden course

Your path brightened by the moon

The moon imbrued with deceitful scent

I  still  remain your faithful plath.
