Sweet Sound Of Desire

And then you fly surprisingly

With the sweet sound of desire,

In spite of all confusion,

In spite of all delusion,

And forget, for now, persecution,

Or hateful manipulation.

 

Nothing holds steady over the long term,

Mountains move, whales change into bears,

Moods swing like musical yoyos,

Love deserts her victim like a bird

With restless wings.  Joy bids soft adieu

Like a clown kissing his fingers;

 

And all dies; houses fall,

Bodies rot into new soil.

So when the joy rings,

Kiss it as it flies,

Thus sinking into eternity`s sunrise,

Taking in the perfumes of ecstasy.
