fairy gone far

she died of cancer
                transitory in the constellation
                                of leo.
she buckled under the influence of his
                demands on her crossed
                                ill luck.
& in consultation with her pride
                she learnt not to cramp
                                her style.
he only wanted her sacrifice of time
                to accommodate the little love
                                he had.
& one day as all astrologers predicted
                he was a bad omen on
                                her star chart.
so when on a dark night under a bright
                crescent moon you see her loveliness
                                on the breeze
                                he will be
                sitting lonely in the silhouette
of an impaled impossible dream of love.
