Touching the Ground

In a warm sun that laughs at our unease
Not speaking we stand side by side

You bury your heart in a cold shallow grave
But to change who you are is to kill yourself today

And you turn and walk away from all that used to matter
As the blood from your heart drains into that black

Hell is having everything that you dreamed of
But the one you would give up all the rest for

So without thinking you are running away from the dawn
Only at the end of your road to be drowned by the dusk

And when her pale hand reaches out there for yours
You suddenly cannot think of why you should fear

For here in this dream where your feet touch no ground
Your companion alights on wings of coal and there delivers you

Consumed by those waters that wash you of your malediction
And there in the darkness all memory at last sleeps
