Slice

Reflect my love upon the night.

Let stars infect this noble sight

With moments of their ancient glow.

Give nascent heavens cause to know

The glories wrought upon a plane

Of wretched death and distant pain.

A scene removed from silent care

Receives a breath of sweeter air.

Behind a veil of blind delight

Sing wonders bathed in clearer light.

Abandon hues of rose and jade.

Envision life in golden shade.

Create a kingdom with your kiss.

Rejoice in gardens of your bliss.

Apart from darkness, freedom flows.

Within the world, a new one grows.

Embrace the promise of that seed.

It blossoms with a secret creed.

Supreme are dreams of joy serene.

The wish surrounds in florid sheen.

Its presence marks a hidden state

Of honest hope and liquid fate.

Be truth! Believe! Let love entice

A private kind of paradise.
