Ever Shifting Love

Beauty which is dead
struggles being prettier
than beauty about to die

Beauty of 'present' stays worried, 
waits to be buried

Last journey of love
when a face with a silent peace

invites madness, 
its maximized need
for another peace

Love unlike lovers, can't die
for the revival
of its 'lost nose'

Love's too incomplete
to complete its sins

Love which is always
the rebirth of a funeral

Love which is the
sound of rain on a tomb.
