Lipstick on Broken Glass

“Love! Love until the night collapses!” ― Pablo Neruda

Let me go mad –
While the sun sits pretty in autumn sky

Let me raise my glass –
to a long life all these years gone by

Let me drift away- 
with falling stars on an obscure night

Let me get lost tonight- 
For you, the vessel that held my light 
now gone forever from my sight 
and all that’s left is lipstick on broken glass

  1. “Lipstick on a broken glass” Sounds like the title for a country song. Sad ending to passionate affair.

  2. “Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
    Dance me through the panic ’til I’m gathered safely in
    Lift me like an olive branch and be my homeward dove
    Dance me to the end of love ”
    ― Leonard Cohen
