I Would Be the Sword


I can be your chain
To hold you to the earth
When the wind is fierce and strong

I will be your shoulder
To rest your head upon
When the world has done it’s worst

I would be the sword
Which slays the mighty dragon
That would send you to your grave

I can be the fire
Burning every broken dream
Which flows within your veins

I will be the sunlight
Which tears through the dark
When the night has been too long

I will be your friend
Each and every day
Who is always at your side

Our life is twofold; Sleep hath its own world,
A boundary between the things misnamed
Death and existence: Sleep hath its own world,
And a wide realm of wild reality,
