last Love song

jazz_singer_by_ingaart

if lips could cry

palettes of color would

pool in bosoms

each breath bleeding

drowning left over down beats that lament

filling chambers echoing with mourning sax

hands which slap aside wishes

punctuate pleas

let her lips cry

leaving her eyes open to see

the truth.
