My Lost Athanasia 不朽

Birthplace ♫ - Novo Amor

 

Beauty in my Palm

 

You are the wild flower in my palm

With no stem to keep you anchored to this covetous earth

You are the fragile thing I dare not cup,

As your petals whittle away under the wind

And flit unfettered in the air;

Exaggerated fear leaves my fingers numb

Hungry need leaves my fingers twitching

And my hand is paralyzed by turmoil

As every breath of wind takes another petal from me

And brings to my lungs, my chest and my heart

An overwhelming scent of need-

 

You are the wild beauty in my palm

And I dare not hold you to my chest

For I fear to crush you

To know first hand

That caged beauty, is beauty no more.
