You were a life I dreamed;
a story told of other’s lives –
not known to me and mine.
Shimmering laughter that echoed
in gardens green and blooming.
A warmth that threw light
into my shadowed soul –
My Redemption –
in this sanguine veil.
Your mercury scarred scion
offers your eyes to pull me from
dark madness into silver misted memory
of light and a love that was never mine.
