sorrows and delights

bring transparent flutter of sails
wearied clouds all-healing purple wrought
frail he steals to lie beneath this city–
his histories heaped from dazzling draperies
cold morn’d offerings
a distant lunatic wind

holding onto insanity
he dreams of rosy veils
and wondrous purple dancing
a temporal silken twilight sound
in reeds he drifts-her sorrow the she–
a discordant prisoner–full of talk

living in ease his shadow away
her brain a silent lingering strife–
she wakes to laugh beneath her veil
a mournful voice blur–his reverie–
to keep bleeding dreaming a silent blue
she pities what threshold of desires clutch
