my heart with lace and diamonds
overtures of ardent love
my will with all that shines and
my mind, or lack thereof
my poor heart with sealing darkness
my sigh to sing the tears
from my climbing lacrimosi
me with my finest years.
the rose from bud to flower
all the petals vanity
my heart with sweet compassion
overtures of joy and love
I’m alone with pain and triumph
Open the gates to free the dove
