Immortal

She’s there

On the other side of my heart

We dance around the fountain

My truth, my words, her hands, her worth

I speak slowly in stutters, approaching

As if I already know my fate

But as much as I would love to know her

I don’t

She is a phantom in my endless night

And a shadow on my bedroom door in twilight

I chase her to ends of my city, then beyond

She runs on swift winds, torturing my hands

With fire my bones are weakened

In the presence of her everything I’m nothing

Just a boy betrayed by a man’s desire

To extend himself into the future

Through her I can become immortal

Immortal man through mortal wishes

Of the never ending love to a woman of earth
