Overnight Overture

Whisky whispers tickle my ears
Intoxicating me completely
The danger is inevitable
Antithesis to self is separation

I am beguiled at your song
Where a hymn begins
The lyrics are real
You can sing better verses

You drill my innermost
I am filled with heavenly chords
Bringing me to the deepest core
I’ve listened to an overnight overture
