Sweet Liaisons

a poem by Amy Ritter

Life is a whisper of a delicious lie.
Dreamlessly bare are the shadows
   that darken the enflamed sky.
Pictures of gorgeous dreams are painted
   endlessly for all to spy.
Lonely music urges summers to die.
We are drunk with the sweet rain of early dawn,
The memories of liaisons long gone.
Our raw transcendence of existence
   presents a void from the light that all avoid.
