The Flight into Utopia

The turbulent
Flight into utopia as the
Heavens open
And powerful forces
Swirl in the mist

She turns
Her moment of sadness
Into great joy
Under the watchful eyes of
The glowing crescent moon

Time in the city of
The soulful rhythm
Of love and lust divine

The boundaries of reason
The Nubian starts
His long march of life under
The gentle light of dawn

At the edge
Of utopia, he makes his
Next move
Still holding onto the memory
Of his first love

On my lips in
A calm delight in this
City of the longest kiss
