Beneath the shower of scattered shards
Another glance disregards
 
The dimming stars above my head
The eyes that meet with yours instead
 
The pressure fusing with my mind
The sweet release I cannot find
 
Drained of every precious drop
And still I cannot cease nor stop
 
The favor shifts with passing dawns
The arrows have fired! The sword is drawn!
 
A king usurps another queen
While I watch upon a silent screen
 
Stealing where I left my love
Severing all that I am of
 
The dueling torture deep within
I don’t know where the fuck I’ve been
 
Walking alone beneath the moon
Withdrawing again in my cocoon
 
Flashes of intense emotions
Carrying into empty devotions
 
Seeing how much there is to give
I cannot leave, I cannot live
 
I feel alone, I feel insane
I fear I may not still contain
 
The will to create, the will to write
How did I lose this encompassing light?
 
Pounding mind and heavy heart
I forgot the love I had for art
 
Lucid dreams and lost abstractions
The transparency of all my actions
 
But now I know what it is for
So I can breathe unlike before
 
To tell another how much I see
Perhaps they’ll look right back at me
 
I will regain this withered strength
To walk again this measured length
 
And love will reform the breaking heart
To reunite as I depart
