IN ANOTHER LIFETIME


IN ANOTHER LIFETIME

____________________

WAKING UP

FROM THE DREAM

SWEAT WAS POURING

FEVER HAD

GRABBED A HOLD

AND WOULDN'T

LET GO

LIKE

THE LUST

OF A NEVERENDING

ENDING

FROM ONE

KISS OF BLISS

TO THE SURFACE

OF THE REFLECTION

OF COLOURS

IN THE GLASS

MIXING IN

AND OUT

OF THE SHADOWS

TO THE LIGHT

THAT CONTRASTS

ALL

A FIRE FLAMED

INSIDE

AND WOULDN'T

LET ME FREE

FOR SO LONG

I HELD ONTO

IT AS LONG AS

I WAS CAPABLE

IT RESTED

IN MY HANDS

THEN SOARED

THROUGH MY BLOOD

TIL IT REACHED

MY BRAIN

AND ELECTRIFIED

AS IT TOOK OVER

I LET IT FLOW

I LET IT TAKE ME

AND WANTED

TO STAY THERE

IN THAT MOMENT

FOR ALL ETERNITY

WATCHING

THE FLOW OF

ALL THINGS

GONE WHITE

FLOWING LIKE A

GIANT WATER SPOUT

THROUGH

TO THE DARKNESS

AND ON THE

OTHERSIDE

STARS AND GALAXIES

FORMED

SPREADING EVERYWHERE

YET NOWHERE

NO MORE

OBLIVION

FOR THE LIFE

OF EVERYTHING

EXPANDED

FROM MY THOUGHTS

ALL MESSED UP

AND YET

CREATED SOMETHING

BEAUTIFUL

COMING BACK

FROM THAT SPACE

THROUGH THE DOORS

THAT ARE NOT DOORS

IN THE MIND'S EYE

OF

TIME

FROM ONE

LIFETIME

TO ANOTHER

SHADOWS CALLED

AND RAN

AS I RAN AFTER

DAYS OF CREATING

NEVER WANTING

TO LEAVE

IN THE BLESSED

ARMS OF THE MUSE

AS SHE SANG

IN MY HEART

IN MY SOUL

THE EYE SOUGHT

OUT TO CONSUME

AND MAKE MY

STARS ALL GO AWAY

AND I PUSHED

AND PULLED

AND SCREAMED

AND CRIED

AND SAID

YOU CAN

TAKE EVERYTHING

BUT YOU CAN

NEVER HAVE

ONE THING

FROM ME

I CREATE

AND I WILL CREATE

EVEN IF I CAN'T MOVE

I WILL STILL CREATE

I WILL STILL SMILE

I WILL STILL

BE ME

DAY BY DAY

I LOOKED AROUND ME

AND SAW

ALL THE BEAUTY

AROUND ME

TO KEEP ME

TIED TO THE GROUND

TO THE LIFE

TO THE EARTH

TO MY HEARTS

DESIRE

LOSING AND WINNING

SOMETIMES

THE COST

IS HIGH

I HAVE ME

I HAVE MY LIFE

BACK

AND YET

SO MUCH HAS

CHANGED

FROM THAT LIFETIME

TO THIS LIFETIME

CREATED A GATE

TO KEEP

THAT WHICH

SEEMED EVIL

INCARNATE

FROM EVERYTHING

AND EVERYONE

EVEN USED

EVIL TO KEEP

THAT EVIL AWAY

TO FIND IT

NOW FADED IN

THE DARKNESS

THE FACE OF WHAT

EVER IT WAS

ALL THE

VICTORY SEEMS

SOMEWHAT

HALLOW

YET WORTH IT

SO WORTH IT

FOR I HAVE

PEACE

WHERE THERE ONCE

WAS FEAR

CAUSE I AM

NOT IN THE GROUND

OR THE AIR

FLOATING AWAY

MY SOUL GETS

TO SOAR FOR AWHILE

MORE

DIMMED THE FLAME

YET THOUGH

THE WALLS ARE

SOLID AROUND

MY HEART NOW

ITS STILL GOT

THAT DIM FLAME

WITHIN MY ENERGY

OF MY HANDS

FROM ONE LIFETIME

TO ANOTHER

TO DREAM

A DREAM

AN AGAINST ALL

ODDS

DO WHAT I COULD

WITH MY SCARS

WITH MY BLEEDING

WOUNDS

FROM A BATTLE

WITHOUT WEAPONS

MY MIND SHINED

THROUGH IT

WASHED IT OVER

AND CONQUERED

THAT WHICH

NO ONE CAN

EVER TELL ME

I FAILED

THOUGH ITS

COST

I PAID IT

AND MOVE IT

FORWARD

INTO ANOTHER

LIFETIME!
