My Magnum Opus

My magnum opus unopened weathered and worn
Dreams evanescent the only witness to my amour
Stubborn stars laughing resolute refusing to fall
Silent echoes like a phantom to my curtain call

From the dark pitch where the winds refuse to blow
Tattered shreds a semblance of a love grown old
Flowers wilt on a patchwork quilt of guilt and tears
Voices roar from my memoire only echoes of my demur

Peeling paint from my memories a light shines its hue
The leaves lightly rustle a ghostly wind blows through
Shadows appear on the walls pirouette and dance
Restless now is it just a dream I reach for your hand

Only shifting sand in an hour glass then you disappear
Stained glass faces stare sallow from the broken mirror
Thunder peels a thousand prayers for your safe return
Smoke from the ashes quell as the memory still burns

I have been waiting for your Magnum Opus, and I was not dissappointed. Jamie
