phantom lovers

phantom lovers

And when a romantic

Phantom considers you,

Abide for a moment

Under the skirt of the Pleiades

Let the sacred om and steady gaze

Remind your heart,

“Yes. I loved a girl once.

“And only the gods know how

“Far I have travelled to forget her.”

 

And when a romantic

Phantom speaks to you,

Stay there, do not run, but

Let the om and steady gaze

Remind your mind,

“Yes. I loved a girl once.

“But no whisper of the Fates

“May arouse me to action.”

 

For it is a phantom

That considers you.

That speaks to you.

She is not the Lover

You once knew well

But a gossamer trick of the spirit.
