The Web Poetry Corner - M A Heathcote - Dim the light come shining through

Dim the light come shining through

by

M A Heathcote

Dim the light come shining through
Thereís a picture a picture of you
Dim the light come shining through
Thereís a picture a picture of you
Dim the light come shining through

Sun-shine in the morning, moon-lilting night
In the evening tide bright
Thereís an angel a portal a vestal of white light

In my heart by my side and in my life
Oh she must be a gift heaven sent
A gift that can only be incorrigibly right
Because no one could ever love her
More than me tonight!

Oh love locket clasp my sea pearl soul and heart
Around her angelic light
Oh tie-up all these loose lingering stars
Shining like pendent tears
In the solar plexus churnings of our hearts

And in these unearthly times I feel
I can still hear her singing calypso songs
With an inner madness so surreal
It must be real
For it throngs for her love within me
It longs to be healed within me
It longs to be fixed like a broken seal

Or it could all just be the starlight
Her ebony all enfolding-
Uninhibited twilight!

Oh dim the starlight
Come shining through
Oh dim the starlight
The starlight, the starlight
Lit by you

That dancing dazzling star
Donít dance so far away from me
Tonight, tonight
Youíve gotta circle your mystic charms around me
Spin your cocoons of love and surround me
Till Iím lost like a moth in a web of delirium
Breaking-out of the light
That holds me in the midst of her night
A captive forced to feed
Till I canít be freed
From your love
Or even be bothered to breathe
Without your love

So chain me to your heart
A captive of the light
In the ebony dark!
