Wayne Russell

on my way to you

and on this long and winding road
forlorn am i
thumb levelled in the racing vengeance of drunken night
hitch hiking in droll stopper

i can't wait to see her face
to embrace her soft slender frame
to kiss her rose petal mouth a flamed
in morning dew

and for now that is all i have to go on
thoughts of her ivory palace
warn asylum
raven haired goddess of my dreams

just making my way back to her in torrential rain
their is no love out here
in the black ink circumference of miserable earth

ties that bind
winding roads inclined
i await that mercy ride to you
