Chequered Love

Fecund – Tom Bagshaw

Chequered Love
Crystal clear emotions
Shining through a veil
Blood from a rose petal
Standing tall but frail
The candle in my heart
Is burning at both ends
In the day I know what’s real
At night I am compelled to pretend
Chequered love
For a chequered life
Life killed love
With an ivory knife
Prepare the person
Pour the wine
Word in my thoughts
You cannot define
Chequered love 
For a chequered life
Life killed love
With an ivory knife
Image in a mirror
Has yet to be known
Bird of a blue feather 
Has finally flown
Green light in my head
Tells me to go
Still the light I answer
Bellows a loud NO!
Chequered love
For a chequered life
Life killed love
With an ivory knife
Prepare the person
Pour the wine
Word in my thoughts
You cannot define
Chequered love 
For a chequered life
Life killed love
With an ivory knife
