Silhouette


This image is a glimpse of what I'd like to taste
the time that I spend not searching seems a waste
the lines shape out an everlasting truth
that we once discovered when innocent and full of youth

I can't see cuz a blanket is over me
of stars and scars and bars that hold me down
take it off I swear I'm willing to tear it to the ground
because of all the cost of curiosity

spellbinder find me one with such words
that could bring me the strength that I would deserve
if I found incentive to carry on the curse
of life and death for better or worse

I can't see cuz a blanket is over me
of stars and scars and bars that hold me down
take it off I swear I'm willing to tear it to the ground
because of all the cost of curiosity

dance beyond the dark of a new found light
sway the rhythm of balance to a height
of spirited movements and cosmical ways
the silhouette of cherished moments shaded by normal days

I can't see cuz a blanket is over me
of stars and scars and bars that hold me down
take it off I swear I'm willing to tear it to the ground
because of all the cost of curiosity

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

It is the hour when from the boughs
The nightingale's high note is heard;
It is the hour -- when lover's vows
Seem sweet in every whisper'd word;
And gentle winds and waters near,
