Scream

 

First a fire, then gaze
Most joys must so bake
Another one in broadened light
Certain fumes in woods recall
Moment of brief elation, outside time
Then again this wasn’t most
For unbroken gaze to fire
Description of pictures
Words and phrases resume
Humble names to feelings new
Dance and shades with countless truths
How real must have imagined
For tears and smiles prove
Effects in art and design
Sometimes sodden as a silent night
Pierced through as candle bright
When outside stood another chapter
Eyeing matters inside
Caught to chance this time
And confessed all through the night
How real to heart beat
Only imagined in sight
Never would then otherwise
Forms to hate condense
And notions sound incapable
For dancing alone ever still
Horrible misfortune the forgotten
I wish and I wish well
Once could have remembered
Wiser songs written down
Of course to come alive
When images the heart blind
But then again would be untrue
For unconscious I bank
Never to speak arranged…
