Enough already

Enough already

Once upon a time
           the story of the artist
as a young man
           the story of the rose
of you and I
           of the light of love
not just words
           but the first word
the propositions
           upon which we build
our lives steadfast
           under ill winds
and changing
           constellations

Pride and fame
           and fortune and power
all seen in the context
           of all that fades
beauty fades
           but not the truth
of beauty nor the truth
           of love
