An abandoned night

She came to him
in an abandoned night
out looking over the water
remembering the life
they'd never live

Test Patterns

The old man is setting watching
test patterns on the wall
he's been sitting watching
spring tun to fall
he is sitting watch us all
he will watch us as he said
every day as we leave
and return to our beds
he will watch us until
we are all dead....

Mercy

Youth is a mercy of love
before the awkward years
of running out our clocks

What is it....

Taking a walk outside
I have no place to hide
a sound I hear, danger is near
my heart beats with fear
I turn and run as fast as I can
through the night, I ran and ran
no time to stop for air
my mind filled with despair
what is it making me run
is it the approaching sun
for fear it might show me the way
or fear of facing another day

Timing

You're running out of day
you're running out of light
condemning yourself
to an endless night
another soul of futile plight
whose screems resurect fright
dust filled mine shafts
where you spent your time
searching for escape
everything collapsing
running down the long
black corridors
keeping you trapped
all because
your timing was off

Understanding

The sacred make love
when they can
and leave behind
a jubilant multicolored
mess
that I unscramble
in my mind
that becomes the day
that puts to shame
all the blind brillance
of mankind

No turning back

In a world where we're always moving on,
leaving the past behind, we've managed....
Things got better, we met our challenges,
until now it seems.... no longer at the threshold,
it's clear that our better days are behind us.
