LARGESSE IN FORMS DIVINE

Copyright 2014 Robert E. Shandor

 

Aimless action
Gains in traction
Leading to complete distraction

 

Always yearning
Heart-a-burning
In endless circles I keep on turning
This way

 

Chimeric towers
Strewn with flowers
Lost forever to rampant powers

 

Hiding chances
Inside of dances
There behind your sidelong glances
I stay

 

We’re trapped inside our separate ways
With nowhere left to turn
We’ve fallen off the path of days
Now in the moon we burn
We cannot find our visions lost   
Of empathy and pain
We let ourselves ignore the cost
Of focusing on gain


Now there’s nothing more to do
Than drowning in the sound
Of heartbeats melting deep into
A pool of thoughts profound
As we tumble, over-end
Down some steep decline
And hope for morning to extend
Largesse in forms divine --
Largesse in forms divine
A-h-h-h, A-h-h -- A-h-h-Ah-Ah, H-a-a-h
Largesse in forms divine --
Largesse in forms divine

 

Vacant playgrounds
Crashing comedowns
Dreams of everlasting rebounds  

Mordant insight
Spawned at midnight
Demanding for a hidebound rewrite
Today

 

Heightened senses
Lowered fences
Yielding less than weak defenses

 

In the mirror’s
Silvered detours
With little chance of gaining recourse     
I stay

 

We’re trapped inside our separate ways
With nowhere left to turn
We’ve fallen off the path of days
Now in the moon we burn
We cannot find our visions lost   
Of empathy and pain
We let ourselves ignore the cost
Of focusing on gain


Now there’s nothing more to do
Than drowning in the sound
Of heartbeats melting deep into
A pool of thoughts profound
As we tumble, over-end
Down some steep decline
And hope for morning to extend
Largesse in forms divine --
Largesse in forms divine
A-h-h-h, A-h-h -- A-h-h-Ah-Ah, H-a-a-h
Largesse in forms divine --
Largesse in forms divine
