I lost heaven’s glance.
You stole merry’s smile.
I was simple and kind,
Feathers for heart,
Mother and father, single arts bind,
Spirit and thunder, changing laws ‘vide –
Now a wondering child disordered,
Seeking answers from yonder.
People with lies, heaven with shrouds –
The city is the truth, crowded with minds,
The disillusioned and the lights;
Thus I listen;
Indeed I might –
Theories everywhere and everywhere they point.
Finding breath to find the right.
With losing of my sight,
I look up to find thick sand,
Breathing-in in the falling earth,
My heart fills with confusion and boulders and tiny stones –
Covered by dust is the present sky.
The sky was once open and up and bright with uneven clouds that lined around.
Now it falls to a frightened heart.
This frightened heart that was feather light –
The sky was open and bright,
Uneven clouds had lined around.
Beautiful stories were up and high,
The sky was open and bright.
Adorning clouds had stories of mine;
They were stolen away by and by;
Now laced with mockery,
Heavy dark and sand left behind,
The sky vanishes
a wonderer –
Earth below and earth up high.
Sand bag for a heart I’ve had.
You gave me this frown,
Thinking out loud –
Bathed in dust I remain,
Covered by dust turned the sky.
