Cleanse the mind with peace of fury,
Overpower with deafening luxury.
Drip steady drops down, diluting old tears,
Memories revive, and madden old years.
Fill my teacup with heaven's condensation.
Let it swell up like perspiration.
Stuff my desires and thoughts past the seams,
Choke out nightmares screaming into dreams.
Let the storm winds come howling at the door.
Scare away the raven, shouting nevermore.
Walk in past midnight, you're always welcome.
Stay in for summer nights, and the wee hours some.
Dense aftermath humidity, like stardust, lingers
And flashes behind my eyelids, with tingling in my fingers.
Walks away slowly, leaving a trail of fog flowers
That float over mushroom fairy towers.
Wandering distance tells stories in sighs
And whispers over the rooftops that rise,
Like the humming tune of farewell over the trees,
Carried to the next down on a scuffed up leather breeze.
