BIRD OF PARADISE

Dusty stars
On velvet black
I wish they wouldn’t call
They’re winking but they’ve already gone

The beckoning branches
All is possible
My darling don’t you fall
There’s nothing more beautiful beyond

This garden
These four walls

And if I got it
What I wanted
In the thin, gilded lines
Let the white smoke
Curl around us
You and I
Locked inside
A bird of paradise
Came to rest upon my finger

When I saw your face
For the first time

You’re in my arms - keep lying there

I hate to see you go
I know that I need too much control

I get so frightened by

Liminal lines
You stand at the threshold

If you walk out
You may never return

The centre of my world

If I got it
What I wanted
In the thin, gilded lines

Let the white smoke

Curl around us
When you sleep
You don’t cry
My bird of paradise

Acquiescent in the corner

Don’t leave me
I need you by my side

The petals of a pouting rose
Can woo a honey bee
But not if they lay beneath my feet

I picture you shimmering
Above the trees

Rose coloured memories

Are circling like a hurricane

As you’re flying away
