Sparkling In The Lotus Silence

o silence that dwells on high buildings
shimmering in my fears
dying flowers drifted in the gutter called decay
heart that is hidden
town looters
homeless dogs heart
i see that lay right in the middle of Semanggi
reconciled me
off in the desert

drifted of the soluble

in the trash

reconciled me
off in the dark
silence is hiding
under the eyelids
reconciled me.

oh cool silence that dwells behind the leaf veins
shimmering in my fears
dying flowers are swept away
reconciled me
before it was to lose you
traces of weeping in the fog
die die me

reconciled me
die in the dance
silence is hiding
megaphone behind the funnel
parade marchers
fill your desert

O silence of the night and ran into the back netting
shimmering in my fears
don't ever leave my loneliness
pushing piles of indecision
the opaque sky
