The Long and Faraway Gone


Before you join the long and far away gone,
With their glossed gibbous eyes full of revelry and sighs,
Let us waltz through the fields of our dreams my love,
Those candy-spun schemes of ephemeral youth.

Pearlescent was joy before cracks dulled the sky,
And age pricked our ears to the pendulous chime,
That hourglass of time where lost lovers shoal,
Through waters stilled in rapturous grace.

Sing before silence steals our words my dear,
Let us whisper of love in a velveteen haze,
Drape white-knuckle kisses on tremulous lips,
And bid long goodbyes to the red setting sun.
