You deserve an Oscar for the act you played

It's raining, it's pouring
My young heart is soaring
I saw a girl and fell in love
Couldn't find her in the morning

Oscar Wilde
Tread lightly, she is near
Under the snow,
Speak gently, she can hear
The daisies grow.

All her bright golden hair
Tarnished with rust,
She that was young and fair
Fallen to dust.

Lily-like, white as snow,
She hardly knew
She was a woman, so
Sweetly she grew.

Coffin-board, heavy stone,
Lie on her breast,
I vex my heart alone,
She is at rest.

Peace, Peace, she cannot hear
Lyre or sonnet,
All my life’s buried here,
Heap earth upon it.
The quarrel of the sparrows in the eaves,
The full round moon and the star-laden sky,
And the loud song of the ever-singing leaves,
Had hid away earth's old and weary cry.

And then you came with those red mournful lips,
And with you came the whole of the world's tears,
And all the trouble of her laboring ships,
And all the trouble of her myriad years.

And now the sparrows warring in the eaves,
The curd-pale moon, the white stars in the sky,
And the loud chaunting of the unquiet leaves,
Are shaken with earth's old and weary cry.

the heat of the summer
fades facing the cold moon.
but I like it here
on our rooftop
held by your arms.
reality seems far away
when you're waiting
for the stars.

'don't be so cold'
they often say.
better cold
dead inside
like you.

waves and earthquakes
may have the power
to shake our world
and our bodies.
but nothing makes
our souls shudder
like words do.
