SENTIMENTAL VEIL

I’LL SHINE A LIGHT SO YOU CAN ALMOST SEE
PRECIOUS LITTLE’S LEFT
OF HOW IT USED TO BE
LIKE CAMEOS CAST OFF FROM DISTANT SCENES
UNDER CANOPY
CLOUDING A BLUE CALM SEA

AND THEY’LL TELL YOU THAT
THE WAYS OF THE PAST WERE INSPIRED
TO MERIT ALL THE SPEED AND SKILL
THAT WE’VE SINCE ACCRUED
ALL THE DELICATE DELIBERATION
THROUGH GENTLE MESH SO DIMLY VIEWED

LIKE CAMISOLES AGAINST THE MIDDAY SUN
FROM THE PRESENT’S GLARE
THE ANCIENT SHIELD IS SPUN
IN DULCET TONES THE FINAL STANZAS HUSH
SENTIMENTAL VEIL
BETWEEN THEIR EYES AND US

AND THEY’LL TELL YOU THAT
THE WAYS OF THE PAST WERE INSPIRED
TO MERIT ALL THE SPEED AND SKILL
THAT WE’VE SINCE ACCRUED
ALL THE DELICATE DELIBERATION
THROUGH GENTLE MESH SO DIMLY VIEWED

CANDLES SHIVER, SIGH AND QUAKE
WAITING FOR MORNING TO BREAK
MOONLIGHT LEAKING
THROUGH THE CRACKS IN LACE
CASTING HIGHLIGHTS ‘CROSS YOUR FACE
