I Sing A Sad Song II


I sing a sad song for those who would
If they could, be entwined for longer than
Fleeting time permits....

I sing a sad song for the resurgence of
Kisses that burn with desire, but must
Not linger...

I sing a sad song for hands that reach,
With only the finger tips touching, as
The clock screams it's time to go...

I sing a sad song for scattered moments,
For arms that cling, soon to embrace only
The emptiness...

I sing a sad song for all the fires of
Passion which flare, fading in the quiet
Gloom, as the door closes and someone
Is left alone to tears.

I sing a sad song for lovers that substitute,
Betraying someone else...

I sing a sad song for those who sit in mourning
In the back of the church...

I sing a sad song for those who roam lone
Corridors, where there are doors they
Cannot enter, marked family members only...

I sing a sad song for dreams weaved of hopeless
Illusions...

My sad song is for all the hearts that ache
On parting...

I sing this sad song soon to be set to music and
Sang over and over again...

My sad song is for all of those who spend time
Singing sad songs....

Poem of the Day

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
