I am a man
knowing what may be
of wandering the streets
in the cold December nights
after the snowfall and the caroling
what is it?
I thought to myself
as wine flowed into my brain
the hot wine that is the late night love
that's there in the corner
it knocked me out
in the dead of night
that one a.m. hustle
the sun rays
cast a watery image
of numb existence

to do
as if already done

to you
as if someone
The grass
was cold
I knew
how it was
and
her life
was
captivating
My street's
on the corner

I tried so hard
to warn her

oh
god she is there
with her short black dress
and her short blond hair
oh
how i yearn to tell her
tell her that i care
560
57
57
i feel my fingers
sift through her hair
but i must remind myself
that she is not there
59
59
darkness runs through my veins
i feel it run to my soul and back
but i am a good man
             a good man
             a good man
             a good man?
60
60
keeping myself from
loving you
is the hardest thing
i've ever done
60
60
kiss me
touch me
**** me
I'm yours

the snow
outside

the ice
outside

almost colder
than my heart
632
632
The attempt of knowing is more
              important than knowing at all.
67
67
i leave the lights on
and my mind unlocked
so you can come back
whenever you want
69
69
down
down deep into my heart
so i can show you that
you were there from the start
77
77
crystals in the sky
crystals in my eye
crystals that i cry
for you, my dear
