our rapture of love

Rapture Captured

Two lonely lovers seeking redemption 
we’d compose a sonnet uniquely ours

Long searching for the missing flame
there were it seemed no friendly stars

This world frowned upon our passion
our happily ever after was delayed

Still we’d not buy their love forsaken
as our own precious love we made 

Holding you tight in rapture captured
we live and love as if we’ll never die

If their world cold cannot understand 
we’ll simply have to let that world cry  

She wore Blue Velvet
Bluer than velvet was the night
Softer than satin was the light
From the stars

She wore blue velvet
Bluer than velvet were her eyes
Warmer than May her tender sighs
Love was ours

Ours a love I held tightly
Feeling the rapture grow
Like a flame burning brightly
But when she left gone was the glow of

Blue Velvet
But in my heart there’ll always be
Precious and warm a memory through the years

She wore blue velvet
Bluer than velvet was the night

Softer than satin was the light
From the stars


She wore blue velvet
Bluer than velvet were her eyes

Warmer than May her tender sighs
Love was ours

Ours a love I held tightly
Feeling the rapture grow

Like a flame burning brightly
But when she left gone was glow of


Blue velvet
But in my heart there’ll always be
Precious and warm a memory
Through the years


And I still can see blue velvet through my tears

Okay the brilliant thing about this trailer, and I know I’m not the first to say it, is that they figured out how to literally surprise everyone.

The oblivious people are obviously surprised.

Before watching, the “aware but uncomfortable” think, no, well of course they wouldn’t go there, they wouldn’t actually do that.

The “aware and hopeful” (i.e., us) crowd also thought no, of course they wouldn’t go there, they wouldn’t give it away like that

And then they did. We get hope, everyone else gets their interest piqued or food for thought, and the writers found a way to surprise every single one of us. And as they have said, that’s the one thing they want more than anything - is to surprise everyone with a great story. Everybody wins.

The surprise for us is how blatant they’re being about it.
