Untitled (for the moment)

By Jules Alder

Thumbing through disintegrating papers, trying to squish the contents of my apartment into boxes, I came across this old love poem and thought, Who would like this little villanelle more than someone on hitrecord? (No, really: I thought that ... )

Had to spruce it up some, as most of us feel we have to with old love poetry found lying around, naked. It was incredibly awful and unbearable in places -- by which of course I mean "beautiful, uncensored and exposed." (Now it's merely tiresome by turns.)

Hopefully, I didn't clothe it too much:
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Roses bled for love make the night divine
a wake-up call soon will shed the worried time
Pardon all; I'm looking for your mouth on mine

Leave some untapped sweetness on your tongue
long gone is the hour of toothless sentiment
Roses bled for love make the night divine

Yours is the price of the blind unknown
of unfeeling hands taught to grace my side
Pardon all; I'm looking for your mouth on mine

For want of sunshine, you'll forget you came
lose your fears, your rusty frame
Roses bled for love make the night divine

Soul of chaos stirs a heart of wine
Don't look so far down on me when I climb
Pardon all; I'm looking for your mouth on mine

Beneath us flows the same as blood when caught
between two lovers, between pure thought
Roses bled for love make the night divine
Pardon all; I'm looking for your mouth on mine

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Ok, back to moving ...
