Sad Songs of Love and Desire


















all my songs are sad songs
sad songs of love and desire
once I had songs of pride
songs of hope songs of triumph
now all my songs are sad songs
sad songs of love and desire
once my songs rang out
loud and clear
now my songs are whispered
late at night when all are asleep
once my songs were shared
throngs sang them in unison
now I am the solo voice
singing to the walls
once my songs opened doors
opened hearts opened zippers
now all my songs are sad songs
sad songs of love and desire

Móðir, kona, meyja- thank you, the text is mine, but the object, alas, is not...

... perhaps, someday, Songs in the Key of Flip?
