Elizabeth - Poem by Leon Roskilly

Eyes that see the truth in those false colours of the night
Lips that cannot lie with a tender touch
Insights of reality in the chaos of unreal life

Zones forbidden, zones allowed, zones of pleasure, and temptation
And she weeps, as she laughs, in silence and aloud
Beside her, behind her, above and beyond her
Eyes that watch and know

Touch my fingers and tell me how
Hold me
