Figment

When I’m hiking through old forests’ trees,
I can’t imagine living in the city.
I’ve seen splendid beauty so few will ever see,
The likes of elves, nymphs, and one peculiar fairy.

The wildest creatures of the mountain.
My first sighting, oh joy, I was overcome.
Hours I waited until my legs were numb
Just for a glimpse of wings reflecting the sun.

Now, these creatures, you see,
(You must excuse me, I mean to say those which I see)
They can be skeptics, just like you, because they don’t believe in me.
Oh, but I believe in them, and soon, you too will see.

Night Sky’s Goodbye

She sees the new day
As it’s about to break
So she kisses the mountaintops
Before they wake.

Her time had come,
But what joy befell her
In that moment,
When she met the Sun.

The end of one story,
Made perfect by a new one’s beginning,
Fulfilling an everlasting promise,
Sealed by surrender and Love’s bidding.

Oh, what kind of constellation is Cancer
Man may never have the answer.

Bend, Break

I feel it in my bones
This is life, this is life.
I bend and I bend
This is life, this is life.
I break and I break
This is life, this is life.
I can’t stay, take me away
This is life, but is this life?

My empathy was taken from me
At a young age, I learned life is fleeting.
It’s hard to feel pain for someone else,
When you’ve seen the face of a friend
Whose heart isn’t beating.

The Shadow of a Mouse

Footfall is but a sound,
Oh, small creature,
Dance across the ground.
One’s life is but a moment,
Like the shadow of a mouse,
Few will ever know it.
