No Rest in Paradise By Martin Hanley

You who loved too much –
Never let me touch so much.
She traced me like a blemish
between her thighs –
A skin of lies laid bare upon her lips.
Dancing with the sun that burns
I sometimes amused her.
Never once thought, I’d ever lose her.
No rest in Paradise for the selfish giant.
The song kept playing;
Endlessly playing.
A love lost at any cost.
One life can’t be enough.
Yet nothing’s ever truly lost.
Beneath the shadow of the spire
the warm wind faded
and the silent waves
swept her footprints away.
There’s hope for the weary;
For those who choose well.
Never give up the fight.
For only in flaming moments
do we fly –
Mending another after another;
And once more in time life begins.
