Image result for lips in

Time passes

One kiss

One moment

One lifetime

Stars burn, fade, die

Life passes

Is renewed

The rain comes at last on a wind full of curiosities

That wakes a sick mind

Dormant too long, drinking tea, feeling old

That crept back amongst the cobwebs

Forgetting adventure, devilish & daring, the need to be bold

Crawl out of the pit away from the stench,

The wreck of the bed with its dreams that mess with your head

Shake off the sickness, climb out of the trench

One step at a time

Change our ways, starting to feel fine

Look at the new scars, badges of honour that are all mine

Reach out to the phantoms, the faces that drift in and out

Kiss them all softly, each one, with their glorious pouts
