Treasure Island

Robert Sheridan


Tripping the Light


Light the incredible night
Long amazing trip it will be
Self-pleasure’s an irony –
Two hearts beating as one
Like a trip through Shangri-la –
In a glass-bottom boat
Retirement from the dance floor –
A one way trip to reality
The music gears up once again
A return to the moon on lighted wings –
You and your partner dressed to the nines
Whichever you turn you see the other’s face
Net of the spoken word cast aside
Your love for one another sentimentality
“Let me be your light, be my light” –
Like a waterfall that dances on the sea
Trip your bodies – shoot the spirit on
Further than love’s target ever shone
Tripping the light sears and stays –
Breaks old doubts and fears
Close your eyes in your endless light
Love’s lamp lights one another –
Unconditionally, two as one, exacting beams
Passionately caressing each other –
Tripping the light forever.
