Orpheus

Under night skies you sing to me
A thousand soulful serenades
In a medieval tongue
You transport my spirit
To paths of long forgotten wisdom

Inner beasts become subdued
By silken rhapsodies
The music that your heart does play
Holds sway, holds sway
The Furies themselves sit calm
And pray

Behind mascara and eyeliner
Your eyes glow
They observe, digest and know
With the wisdom of an ancient shaman
You weave words and lines
And paint on canvases
Worlds of illuminating beauty
And you dance between dreams and reality

Once upon a time
Love caused you to enter places
Of dark desire
And tear-soaked faces
And in the womb of doom and gloom
Your soul did blossom and bloom

Now you sing in twilight
You inspire my soul to take flight
To find home within dreams
And magical moonbeams
There we shall dance
For an eternity
Our private heaven
Of joy and it’s purity

Artist's Description

Every once in a while, Fate allows us to encounter someone whose essence is so extraordinary, that you feel truly inspired.
This poem is for someone who fits that description and more – a true Renaissance Man who is not only a gifted musician but one of the most talented, amazing artists I have ever seen.
(My dear Renaissance Man, I know you deplore attention but for this one instance I do wish to publically delare my fondness and appreciation for all that is you. Also, my digiart skills are incredibly limited – but felt that I neede to incorporate an image of you to do my words some justice. Xoxo)
