Nights in Beijing by PWB Poets
Fast and furious, I chase
my dark dreams across the sky
as the blackbirds circle and cry
longings of an abandoned heart
fill the void that keeps us apart.
Broken, we are unspoken and chokin',
no token of your esteem for me;
but ghosts in a Chinese shadow-play.
Vast and curious, I still chase
your dark truths amid the lies
that bury us on the eastern plain.
Barren, our kabuki died in vain
with our child a vapid stain-
blood run the dream that never was.
Fast and furious, the chase is never done.
