A Phantom Lover


Words: music, defenses, sensation, tender, truth, imagination, night, listen,

Listen to the tender music of the night
Such sensation as the truth emanates
Imagination runs wild as to why
A phantom lover found in the wood

All the defences used for her plight
She lies there as if she for him awaits
She was a sight of awe as we sigh
By the tree which produces rosewood

  1. Great poem. The picture suites your words very well. I love the Phantom of the Opera. When they did it in Las Vegas I saw it twice! And as a little girl I did actually hear Sarah Brightmem perform in it. I’m wondering what happened to the woman’s chest in the picture? Is that where her corset dug in?
