Two Shades of Pale
6.4.99


In the shadows of light
By the dusk of night
Two shades of pale
Emerge from sight
Taken in
Held within
Two shades of pale
Free from sin
One and one heart beats
Few words spoken on top of the sheets
Two shades of pale
Come together in fleets
A timely courtship
Enduring friendship
Two shades of pale
Take ownership
An abrupt separation
Many a confusion
Two shades of pale
Go apart in retribution
A turbulent time
Pretty jagged chime
Two shades of pale
Take a trip to the five and dime
Hearts broken
Angry words spoken
Two shades of pale
Disembark on a notion
A fate is sealed
The orange skin peeled
Two shades of pale
Put up thine shield
Tomorrow comes ordain
A release of pain
Two shades of pale
Taken apart in the rain
An open book
A second look
Two shades of pale
From fate it took
No more to be
No time to spree
Two shades of pale
A remarkable tree
