Possum

Playing with your hair
And your eyes half-open
Like you're just up and waking
From another beautiful dream

Your lips are holding words
Potent enough to take the heart
Of another man
Who doesn't know your kiss

A sea of beauty
Coloured black rests on your neck
A man could forget golden fields
And be tempted to tread the jet

Yet your eyes remain so inviting
Hide away from the heart in your hand
I would rather think of darkened diamonds
Than love crushed at your will again

Blood and tears you have cleaned
Always yours and once was mine
I only wish that you're stains were visible
My love is holding strong behind

A photo can speak a thousand words
Speak one and I promise you then
That I will remember your song forever and
With it remember love. Again.
