Prologue

Here lies lust
It burnt brighter than the sun
And hotter than its core
But fiery stars die fast
Then everything turns to dusty memories
That gather in stricken craters of frozen passion

There flies love
That waxen ethereal dove
It soars; it soars so high
Chasing rabbit clouds like a bounding mutt
But higher yet it spirals
Till the sun kisses its wings
And molten tears fall from the sky

Don't stare at the sun
Turn away from the eclipse
Walk back from the cliff
Edges herald falls
An angel becomes the fallen
Cosmic travellers offer no salvation

Here lie lies
Not skeletons, not quite
Though both glow china white
When truth strolls past
With moonlight on his arm
