there is a story told in whispers

late at night of an angel

who descended from heaven

to tell a man that if he wished

to be free it was required

that he abandon all hope

and ride the tides of her passion

onto the rocks where all journeys

end before they have started


he gratefully laid his gift

of desire at her bare feet

and grasped tightly her wings

lest she disappear

when he awoke from his dream


the old men shake their heads

and utter to those who will listen

such is the way of all fate and love


before we can return the gift

we must give it as before we can let go

of the song we must let its melody sing

free from the bones of our very souls
