4:00 a.m again.
The bluegreen lanterns fly the sky,
Guding me home.
My eyes fall like bricks.
Sinking into the water,
The overflowing madness in my mind.
Salted by the drops within my eyes.
As the water begins to stir,
My mind becomes a blur.
Blackened liquid waves rage in a craze
Winter winds blow.
Send ice and snow.
As i toss a match to set the wave
This clawing red monster,
I let her grow stronger.
She takes my hand,
Tell's me she'll show me the way.
A turn of the wheel,
A press of the foot,
And all i know
Turned to soot.
And then my friend.
That winter wind.
Turns back the wheel once again.
The ash and gloom,
My blazing doom.
Only the beast of my heavyset eyes.
That bluegreen mist, lighting the skies.
And those lanterns float, my guides.
Tighten my grip on the wheel,
While gently caressing the pedal.
It's 4:01 a.m again.
Those late nights coming home from work...
