Inspired by an episode of "Inspector Morse"
There were two Suns. I slipped between.
Now trees in the water without me.
I am lingering between two beautiful Worlds,
still waiting for someone to claim me.
The noose about my neck is gone,
gone back with the hands that tied it.
In it's place is an ethereal daisy chain
woven of air and magic.
Instead is an ethereal daisy chain
where once your lips caressed me.
Oh how could those hands that so worshipped my body
have become the ones to slay me?
What of your glib endearments now
that still endlessly taunt me unbidden?
And where is your reflection in the water now
above where my body lies hidden?
This canal was our special trysting place,
hand-in-hand we'd stroll by the water.
So how could my simple smile for a stranger
have justified such rage and slaughter?
For a century I've haunted this tow-path now:
a reflection of remains unfound.
For everyone believes the lie that I left you,
and you've long since gone to ground.
I am taking a week off to recharge my batteries.
As I know my chosen destination is an extremely poor connection zone, I hope you will all forgive me if I am unable to visit your wonderful blogs next week...I will miss them so much...:(
But I will "see" you again soon...
