SUSPENDED IN DUSK
~
She wasn't dealt a royal flush
Drugs and alcohol stole her blush
Haunted by life, praying to die
They misconstrued the reasons why
~
Death was her friend, her lover too
Suspending in dusk, there to woo
Taunting desires, endless needs
Captivating and sowing seeds
~
Dance in seclusion, shades of night
Clandestine meetings, far from light
Anticipation, what will be?
Wicked enchanter, sets her free
~
She slipped away holding his hand
The pain now over, life's demand
Suspended in dusk, through the veil
With sheer delight, final exhale
~
No worries of those left behind
Eyes wide open, yet they were blind
Keep your flowers, it's way too late
No mournful tears can compensate
~
Where were you in her solitude?
Claiming it was but attitude
Haunted now by September sun
It's too late, what's done is done....
