Embers Of Twilight...with Flowergirl

Dark moonless nights in limbo of dreams
Makes me shiver under a blanket of desire
Wearing a carnation six steps below the sun

My imagination taking me places I’ve never been
Floating in a bottle of my Bombay dry gin
As I scribble the devil's woo

Chanting of an unknown song
Humming lyrics to the beat with chattering bones
With tales of chowder and dark wings

Tarnishing the pewter of the silent butler
Hearing foot steps in an empty hallway
Without a ladder to egress 

From the pale of a mahogany's shell   
Of gothic poets taking a powder with wigs 
Ghosts wearing long black hair not being seen

On a sanctimonious highway to hell 
Grandstanding at the abyss of night
Tumbling out of sight into insanity 

Dark moonless nights in limbo of dreams
In shadows of Eros loosing the limbs
Where red embers become twilight

As the rusted pendulum swings 
Of life's crumpets in my cream
Listening to a silent scream
Written by adagio
