the sun has rose again
Said whoa'
my eyes reflected red
my shadow's back
and it just wont stop talking

your scent is in the wind
so slo'
it guides me cross this land
i peel the flesh from my bones
how does it keep on growing back

i wonder
this endless scape
i keep no recollection
of where i've been
in time there's no direction
follow the blood
then realize that it smells like mine

i digress
you are my life
your noise is music
take tear from my eye
so slightly soothing
if bliss feels like this
then i will meander
til i die

and with the rising of the moon
i see you fall from the stars
the weeping mount^ins
catch your grace
as my eyes slowly meet yours
both a swirl
of color pure
just like the ocean

a vexing visage
to fleeting rational thought
pay no attention
to the soul within you
starting to rot
i feel the turn
our time
is short
The Sun Approaches*

burn the eyes out my skull
feed the deed of my soul
let the blood run gold
body's young
mind's old

say goodbye
to the night sky
live and die
in twilight

i see The Sun Approaches~
