Bare flesh
       on 
          bare flesh,
she sings
          to me
"There's only us"
                 Two.
  alone.
 but still in such good
company.
"There's only this"
this
       cold
purifying
     air  warm
flesh
      No music
in the backgrou
nd    She supplies
 the music with her
Siren 
          Song,
 sung to a willing
victim.
"Forget regret"
     does she know that 
forever
whenever
        Mister Regret 
comes to visit
 with her name
          on his mind,
 i will pat him
     on the back and send
him       on his merry 
way?
      "Or life is yours to miss"
if life
       holds any more of 
you for me, Beth, then i would
               commit
 the most horrible wrong
                     by missing anything.
"No other road, no other way"
            I give in
to whatever
         she may ask.
"No day but today"
       exactly what 
i felt
       this morning,
kicking the white powder
         off my car,
 damning mother nature  for
    her choice
  of weather.
Her song stops, 
       but she does not.
 this was the day when
i discovered
           the power of
song     and
     freely submitted
myself.  
    to it.
