Maria

Maria stole a song from heaven
dressed it up pretty colours
claimed it was her own creation
and sold it on to me

depths I saw were mere illusions
paintings done on glass to fool me
I embraced the lies she told me
held them to my heart

they say you cannot fool a wise man
but love will strip a man of wisdom
’til he believes his life has meaning
until it’s much too late

and as I slumbered all unknowing
Maria disappeared forever
certain that she had done all
that she could to me
