bathe your heart in love

let warm glow surround, let not

hatred infiltrate

hatred infiltrate

the cool air above me and

dissipate away

Dissipate away

Solemness heartbreak brings, yet

Scars ever present

inseparable

breath and song, nowhere will they

wrestle for your joy

wrestle for your joy 

sleep at last and dream alive 

relaxed, I could fly

relaxed, I could fly

with dragonflies and starlings,

my wild heart throbbing

my wild heart throbbing 

running uphill, into sun 

exploding visions

exploding visions

oracles exit swiftly

when prophesies fail 

rats blame cats for plague, black

abyss claims its spawn 

 

sorry, I'm morbid like that :D - choose the one you prefer. 

 

when prophesies fail 

fools ask for new date, buying 

exemptions to fate

I accept the dark challenge.  :w00t:

 

abyss claims its spawn

when heart is choked by grasping

stark, the ravaged cave

stark, the ravaged cave

rock knocking and hissing sand,

sea scoured by the waves

sea scoured by the waves

echoing a salty lisp

palisades crumble

palisades crumble 

seagulls don't ponder why or 

how long it will take

how long it will take

not a consideration

just take the next step

just take the next step 

broad and clear, the path is there

along crystal creek

along crystal creek

shining landscapes sweep and yield

transcendent fragrance

supernatural

supernatural

churns inside the bright engine -

each swift minute's oil

leaked from future into past 

always, never - now

always, never - now

hummingbirds disregard time

while drinking nectar

while drinking nectar 

unimpressed with gravity

caressing the mountain's face

Hiding so close now

Under the bed, her hand drops

Humans can lick too
