Midnights Voice

(November 3,1950 / Selma, Alabama)

You Promised Me


She whispers charms to the wind
From the second floor's fire escape

Her heart has been broken so many times
and now once more.

His soul dances in the aurora borealis
and is challenged, he can no longer
be more, all is, born as all is.

He made and kept eye contact
She looked at him with no change.
He remembers it so strange,
Hey! , Hey!

Star's fire flickers faintly for a faithless heart.
So cold their breath upon my face.
Their kiss feathers faultlessly upon my lips.

Ten good reasons to stay alive?
To the rose that feeds the bee,
steals the heart away...
Remember?

You are deeper than skin,
You promised me.

    Maybe she couldn't pull away from his stare.....unspoken promises....what an ache they create.... A truth between two.....of course she remembers....bet she stares at the night sky looking for him... (Report) Reply

    To the rose that feeds the bee,

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
