listen carefully to the sound
of your loneliness
have you any dreams you’d like to sell?
in your absence shut the door
like a heartbeat drives you mad
if you talk enough sense then you’ll lose your mind
in the stillness of remembering what you had
and what you lost
let’s take a breath, jump over the side
are you going to age with grace?
when the rain washes you clean
dark as night, let the lightning guide you
the forest that once was green
is colored black by those killing machines
are you going to leave a path to trace?
