The Phantom left the Opera

Gladly leaving a stale stage

Ending a worn chapter

Turning a new page

The Phantom left the Opera

A new venue he’d find

He quickly took up playing

In the corners of my mind

The Phantom of the Opera

He’s no kind and gentle friend

For chords and keys of yesterday

He replays to no end

The Phantom of the Opera

No longer stands alone

He’s ¬†joined the host of Phantom’s who

All make my head their home…




A wakening…

Her wind blew fierce

scattering illusions and misconceptions

torn away they flew

in all directions…

Held still for a breath

in this storms silent eye

came the gift of a cleansing

from a gales midnight sky…
