An Ode to My Beloved Inamorata
You ask for the whole watery World My heart covets to give you the gaseous gargantuan Galaxy But, my hands only confer you the lusty lavish land
You ask for the pleasant peaceful Paradise My heart desires to bestow you the harmonious heavenly Heaven But, my hands only afford you the specific secretly Spirit
You have the circular Crown I have my clubbable Clock You hate my timeless Time But, I have your honest Heart.
Long lost soul Found foul foil Teary teensy ten-eighty Sweaty scary scenery Dismantled Dismembered Died Roughly.
The tale of the rain
Millions of grains are falling Like horses on the roof Keeps on clanging Keeps on weeping proof To be its stand-in will be my calling Feel the presence of my pain And I will do my crying in the rain.

Godly eyes-oh, no- It will never open again 143(I love you) 125(I am sorry) 13545(I was drunk that night) Cop: Don’t sob! Bars are waiting One last cry One last glance 1 (good-bye)
