A Song For You
Tonight, wither the leaves of grief from the thistle of your mind. Tonight, loosen the chain of sorrow fettering your legs from treading places of desire. Tonight, shatter the velvet of forlorn adorning your body as eldewiss embellish the face of gardens. Tonight, embrace the beautiful you, you've always been spurning like odious things Tonight, listen to this balmy song I compose for you, tonight, let my melody dissolve into a tomb; your grievances.
