Skirmish prompt: Box

Lyrics: 

V1
box of July
found wrapped
in moonlight
catches my eye
and draws me in…
into memories
of you…

of you
last summer
when we were lovers
in the moonlight
on long hot nights
and love was
so sublime

C
box of July
a gift so fine
of love once mine
with hearts entwined
now shadows of love
are trapped inside
tangled up in vines
impossible to open…
one last time

V2
box of July
found sealed
with heartstrings
touches my soul
and takes me back
back to reflections
of us…

of us last
summer
when we discovered
how love’s heartstrings
awoke our dreams
and love was
everything

C
box of July
a gift so fine
of love once mine
with hearts entwined
now shadows of love
are trapped inside
tangled up in vines
impossible to open…
one last time

"box of July/found sealed/with heartstrings" - I love these lines!! This is such a neat take on the prompt. I love your imagery of all the ways the box is tied - heartstrings, tangled vines, wrapped in moonlight. Beautiful visuals.

Some awesome lines in there. Beautiful & sad in that "love that was once there is now a shadow that's entangled in vines, impossible to open, one last time". Well written as always and great title hook.

Super, super nice. Well done!
Someone MUST pick this up and run with it. Let me know when they do.

Wow, this is a great set of lyrics skirmish or not. That chorus is just dripping with sorry and loss. This is a really beautiful but heartbreaking set of lyrics.
