Departed Love

The gulls of your brows drunken with salt and passion
Fly into the never-ending sky

The vessels of your smiles thick with oils
Cruise into the incessant seas

Your diamond eyes fall into the waters
Your golden sun-rays from sky to sea

And soon there comes a point when I must let the struggling bird free
And you intoxicated with freedom, chase day’s justice

You part the circle of my arms
And the rim of my world

The flowers of love wilt without your soul-water
And like a starless sky I wait

My soul chilled by winter and my eyes dimed by darkness
Stay motionless in the eve of your departure

And these great lands fall asleep
With the opiate of unrequited love
