Never Meant to Be

This is the time that never was
and was never meant to be
for those days and nights
of our release
were never really love at all
they simply were an answer
to the savage call
of sexual desire and need
stoked in fueled forms of wealth
and greed for infamy

Now heed this wisdom well, my friend
for this passion seems to have no end
nor does the savagery
that the heat of your desire
has come to be
yet end it will, it must

for I trust this peace
of stillness in the night
as I lie protected in the arms
of the true mother of us all
and she sends the call of savage beasts
back to the jungle's heat
to explode
exposed at last for what it is
pure lust
that never rises to the heart
or flows from wisdom's wells

for you and I
were of a time
that never really was
meant to be at all . . .
