Searching for Ecstasy.Robin Marchesi.Poem.


Round and Round

Just wearing out a broken frown

Being eaten by a hungry world

Us truants from another time

With ribbons from a different rhyme…


Where are we?

Surrounded by Eternity

Or is it just a dream,

A vision that we’ve seen,

When you’re searching for ecstasy…


You and me

Just walking over broken glass,

A mirage that will let you down,

Us players in a game of chance,

Random travellers in a magic dance…


Here we are,

Children lost in destiny,

A throw of foolish dice,

The joker comes up twice,

When you’re searching for ecstasy…


So here we go,

For shadows in a picture show,

Unwinding action, real to real,

Stargazers from a lonely place,

To captivate a raptured face…


It may be,

Solutions lost in fantasy,

There’s a rainbow in your heart,

Love’s woven from the start

When you’re searching for ecstasy.
