Jazz: Rhapsody in You Pt. 10 — Lifeblood

They
Say
1st love
Is such sweet
despair, like these words
Penned in delicious agony

Of
The
Very
Ecstasy
Crisscrossing currents
Between my body & soul. more
Than just a metaphor, you dwell from my first to last

Verse
(&
I heed
The basic
Instructions before
Leaving Earth), as though poetry

Were
The
Lifeblood
Chanting down
Walls of Babylon
With words as guardians of love.

&
It
Is you
Who will be
Fulfillingness’
First & last finale, flying

High
Like
A bird
Of beauty
Inescapable
Of the air we breathe, immortal
As the clockwork of spirits transcending life & death.
