Of course last time i looked i was knees deep
before i even knew I’d drown,
and when i rose out from where the waters
swallowed the earths beauty,
my body had changed forever, like in the days of Noah
and the new soil emerging from dreamers dew.
I was spring with a fever.
& the ways of the people are to unfamiliar by now,
I was forged and painted by the colours of a sun,
to form part of a different tribe.
How can you insist i follow a road i can no longer see?
And i was light years away from your mind,
and my dreams had encompassed the galaxies,
and the galaxies me,
I was destroyed.
& i know the song of a dreamer who dreamed too much,
so flesh and blood turned him over,
and after years of unkempt ties
and worn out eyes,
rose to be king.
I’m a slave too,
my love is a river,
and my heart an out of tune drum,
but its still savage and worhty of love bearing,
with every beat.
Show me the the pavement you feel I’m must tread,
and i will show you bodies of water that had needed years of
treading, but you loved the shore too much,
as well as your thinking.
