Her Again

there are truths in the world
little spheres of undiscovered sympathy
encased in empty mystery
we find them here and there
and from time to time they reach out
they bring peace to those that understand the word
and chaos to those who don’t
a bird flies into a spider’s web
a spider dies in a owl’s nest
on and on the circle flows
a ring of misfortune for the favoured bold
i sit up in my chair of thought
you glare at me from the couch you bought
we are lost in our lives
lost in the temptations that we have created
a pulse soars through the night
your light is there too
what is the truth in this moment
in this version that we forever hated
back and forth the hours go
they listen as we let them know
they feel our endings as they form
we’re out of time
livid oxidation is now the norm
you sip your strain of hellish black
as i watch your hair flow over your shoulder
over the right window of your soul
your ears and the neck of your nape
you are breathless and i am your unfathomable escape
apples to plowshares and back into the glare
i look at you
your death lingers
this is not about you anymore sweet symphony
no serenity
we awaken to the wake you have brought
into our wake
i am asleep though
the light in my room went out when you did
hello new year
a goodbye to the gone
farewell sweet innocence
i give you up now to the red swan
