Amy


Through chasms of time and eternity


I am at war, drowning at sea

Calling out your name to save me

Amy

Over the waters the silence screams

Lightning shatters electricity

These waves are crashing

Over me
- -


Take my hand I think Im sinking further down
The oceans rise and I cant seem touch the ground
Am I dying I'm afraid i wont be found


Life is such a bitter comedy
Ninety ninety nine and so naive
You will never find a bigger fool than me

Amy

If I could just turn back the hands of time
But I have crossed so many lines
Looking for you in the streets at night
Breathing in your name
- -

Out of my hands in deep dark seas
What is this you have done to me
Mists reach from obscurity
Reaching for anything
to bring you back to me
- -
How many tears I have cried
Bottled in the sands of time
In the avenues of trees
Feel you next to me

Oh Amy

If I could just make sense of all of this
Perhaps a map in an ancient manuscript
guide me to where you are
A distant shore and unknown stars
I swear this time I would not miss
The promise that I could not give
Now nothing ever sounds the same
I still call out your name

Amy

Poem of the Day

poet Tu Fu

Tonight at Fu-chou, this moon she watches
Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
