the dark side of the moon

the dark side of the moon
blocking the sun as it smiles
silent the silence of darkness
juxtaposed against the shout
joyfulness of the sun a light so bright
Juliet the sun comes undone
obsidian dark dead is Montague
misread queued the messages
love is not for flesh and blood
it is a metaphor so shuts the door
of all hope it is sublime anxiety
the knowing of not knowing
truly is this the one of hearts
beating hearts not two but one
destiny the fate as matchmaker
serendipity it was not romance
kismet then of never knowing
the dark side of the moon
blocking the sunshine smiles
silent the silence of sunlight
obsidian twilight dark shadows
love is not for flesh and blood
it is a metaphor so shuts the door
close the heart it is not this one
on the far side there is nothing
obsidian dark dead as Montague
Juliet the sun comes undone
love is not for flesh and blood
it is a metaphor so shuts the door

the dark side of the moon

Artist's Description

A flirt and flirtation of what, “if” and then, “what might be” just a thought that leaps into your heart like quicksilver slippery and so shiny and illusive. Love is a shape shifter and stealthy, it comes and goes you can have a love affair lasting seconds of a lifetime in your eyes only and then never giving it a second thought; it never reached your heart. Love is not for flesh and blood mortals, it is a metaphor of sublime anxiety, hoping that love might be yours, a sharing of sunny sunshine days and romantic moonlight nights from full moon to crescent moon and beyond the dark side of the moon, love is a thought as meaningful as a blink of an eye so shuts the door of sobering reality. Life would be so sad without daydreams and night dreams and hopeless romantics so enamored with the idea that love is just about to meet them at any moment and the knowing of not knowing who will be the one, sigh very few get that love to be a part of their life, sublime anxiety fills the heart with hope, I am always hopeful. Be ever vigil for love, it is a mystery worth experiencing, even if you are clueless that love is the hope of the promise of the promise that love is more than just about you, it is for the two of you.

A sketch and note of love from the Book of Cinnabar Butterflies a reminder that love is a metaphor; more romance than reality, but worth dreaming about day or night and that love is always hopeful and can open a door that is shut.
