The Veil

Fluttering fabric sways, so fine.

Try to tear my eyes away but I can't.
Why does beauty haunt me so?

Torment me a little each day?
A little laughter you just smile.
Pretty eyes, look this way;

just once is all I ask.

I couldn't ask for anymore.

You're all smiles when

you're not tired, jittery, waiting.

For the hand to hit the eight.

Time goes much too fast.

Slow down tireless hand.

If I pull your battery can I

stop time?

Rewind?
Pause for just a second?
Then we can go back to

normal.

Different.

Normal.
Only if you say yes.

Come let's remove

the veil.
