Escape Love

Escape Love

Peace, stillness, love
Crazy as a dove
A Dove of love's escape
Memories slowly wake
A mantel where portraits hang
The song he once sang

Enlighten me this night
Under the silent moon light
Where we once ran
Hand in hand

He calls me once a day
Only in my mind he stays
If I had him I would cry
From this devil inside

Take me humble port
Upon your shores of disacort
Swing me gently in your wake
Feed me, pleasures cake
Return him to me
Make him see

From this I shall not sway
This feeling is my only way
To feel his love this day
I tear his photo in my book
From which I wish to never look

Lover, friend you are gone
Regretfully, my love shines on
You still sing your song
In your wispy breath
Often bringing lust death

So again I say
Enlighten me this night
Under the silent moon light
Where we once ran
Hand in hand

Her Aunt, who, from her Earliest Youth,
Had kept a Strict Regard for Truth,
