In your laugh, I find

A child afraid of growing old

And in your eyes, I see

A woman watching time.

My purple shaded canvas,

Your skin has lines of a sharp star

Your heart, mellow clay

And on your lips, a gentle curse

For the spell I broke.

Lie next to me, and

I'll be silent.

Watch the light come and leave

Buried in white sand

We will feel the waves

With the sound of grass in the wind,

I'll breathe you slow.

My wandering cloud

Where will you go?

When the sun melts

Where the eye cannot see.

Let your words be whispers

To my patient ear.

And vacant, I

Go through the needle's eye

Run my fingers down your spine

Tell you before the day arrives

On your back,

Is a road to the moon.

Upon Looking Back On All Things Past

Speak of the days that went by
Or the beauty which gives you wings
The ocean i find in your sad eyes
A heart that wants to sing.

I've always known that sadness
that beckons closer for it calls
The melancholic song of the night
Is the most beautiful of all.

More beautiful than whispers
More sublime than the rain
In her arms i find no sleep
And i find no pain.

In that cold, dark night i have tried
to shape many a different thing
To find stars fallen from the sky
And the joy it would bring.

But stars are mere pieces
they lie broken in our hands
Like the heart of a woman
Like the soul of a man.

So i return to you with sadness
that has made my mind its home
And with it i've waded through darkness
Silent, empty and alone.

Let's travel to a world pure and blue
like the one in your song
Lets start spinning and never stop
Before the season is gone.

Dream with open eyes
Chase me with your smile

And the light will cause every eye to ache
At the coming of the dawn.
