    dotsThe Wreck of Pulchritudedots

    Over the distant misty plains of India
    A pink peach sunrise
    Lifting in a perfection of light
    And high in the tracts of the Khyber Pass
    Scattered in silence on the velvet of night
    A billion dusted candles of stars

    I have seen a beauty which staggered my soul
    Felt the tears well from the burning in my throat
    Touching the miracle, an awe that echoes ever after
    Coming to me in the sound of my own laughter

    Heady heat the height of summers daze
    We loved together within the forests breeze
    I sat in a breathless age watching entranced
    As she walked naked through the shimmering trees
    Bathing her pale form she kissed living green
    And about her the forest light danced

    I have seen a beauty which captured my soul
    Felt the anguish to hold it burning from my throat
    Touched upon the miracle, I new would not last
    As every second of its happening forced me to laugh

    A day of storms while breakers raged against the cliffs
    The cold wind spray about our faces whipped
    The rumbled roar calling the power of nature
    And the rolling eons of the sand beneath out feet
    On the most precarious above the precipice
    We stood with our arms wide and out stretched
    And new we were free

    I have seen a beauty which rendered my soul
    Felt the tears well stinging from the song in my throat
    Met with the miracle, whispering a second of eternity
    The sound of my own laughter coming to me

    In the silence now, just a memory
    The days of grey are all that I see
    I cannot impart what any of it meant
    Cannot even touch this moment
    Living in a vacuum with nothing to share
    It seems like I just donít care
    The shadows of solitary eating through me
    And the dumb numb world is all there will be

    The soft music of a spring rain
    Promises to wake me from my sleep once again
    And turn me from the bed where emptiness rest
    To face the cold blank wall
    Of my loneliness
    No reason to smile
    No reason to speak
    As I slip from the chill of unshared sheets

    I have seen a beauty killing my soul
    Remembered some tears, there was an ache in my throat
    Is this a miracle, I can no longer grasp
    I hear a sound but its not my laughter

    People die so very slowly
