The wind wrestles with my hair And fills my cheeks with pink. The thickness of the day surrenders to the coolness of the night. Fleeting hues of violet and yellow Set my heart on fire A promise of warmth. The world is still. But the fire goes out and the shadows flood in Unveiling the deepest depths of darkness The stars scream out: The sun will rise again, The sun will rise again.
And when I'm around you I can dance from sunrise to nightfall I can dance and proudly stand up tall I can dance from dusk until dawn i can dance and never shall I fall I can dance and forever stand up tall I can dance from sunrise to nightfall Just for you Because of you
When someone is in your life and just makes your heart dance simply by being around them.
Glowing Windows embedded into mouldy brick walls Ivy climbing the gutters of neighbourhood roofs Skies becoming burnt out like charred blackened fields
Tall spiny trees project shadows onto the road below Leaves curl up to receive some weakening light from above A formation of sputtering cars cling to each turn they decide to make Cloudy milky light bounces off faulty windows that exhale the aroma of somebodies impending supper
A heavy truck manoeuvres itself into the blistered bitumen horizon Dry deflated branches make obscene gestures towards passers-by Gardeners rummage through their bags as they near the end of their working day Their faces filled with an expired enthusiasm for breathing
Parked hunks of metal pelted with dead itchy leaves Windscreen wipers hold fragile twigs down against grotty neglected glass Chain-link fences link disparate housing and the sleeping people within Some dispirited unsatisfied psychos gaze up as they catch a moving bus
Smoky Incense billows down from some apartment balcony The air becomes cold and sharply fills these ordinary streets Engine sounds try to supress the divine quietness They only merge into it
Now the stars are out and about Bright specks waddling in an aerial pool of dark blue You turn the key and walk through the front door
Hopefully you enjoy this, I'm kinda strange about sharing what I write and I get rather shy but yeah enjoy, I'll stop talking now
I wish to be buried forever into the twilight In the light before dawn and and dusk Dark, apocalyptic, shadowy world Barely more light than a candle, now The sun has been snuffed, The moon remains groggy under the horizon Still deep under covers, in her dreams Awaiting a sun to come and burn them away.
To remain ever on this moment, here, now, Feet settling on the moss One with the earth, then separate Gravity and inertia back together again To the distant mirth of youthful joy I ponder my old age I am left to empty boxes, and empty spheres.
Now, who? Who? Who is there? Whom can I fight? What is it here for me to conquer To ensure the continuity of this moment? None, and time shakes her head As she glides past suffocating me The mushrooms are left to rot I reluctantly turn back to the light To day by day, I return to life.
