To be lost endlessly,
To believe in nothing.
Gliding wraiths pass through time
Exposing every wound in our minds.
And the echo sounds
like mountains being torn down.
To belong to dreamless sleep,
The cold bottom of the sea.
The pulling tide of all our moons
Moves the waters over our tombs.
And the echo sounds
like mountains being torn down.
We can’t abide what we do
and rust corrodes the statues.
Beauty becomes obscured
In a cacophony of laughter.
Mountains fall.
