Velvet Astraea Dido


Off my head
Off my hands
Why can’t I get you off my system?
One sky above us seem
To envelope us in one space
But time set us apart
And now I’m just a fraction of you
But never will I see
And never will I need
To know all the answers
I’ve come to pull you back
Well at least your shadow
But you placed a barrier between our thoughts
And now I’m blind
And the judgment sails away
A chilling wonder
Kept bugging my head
Perhaps my mishap
Were there from the start
And I lost the momentum
And I lost
My mind kept bringing you back
Years and years of silence
Not a word
And I utter the vacuum in straight lines
No turning back
But looking back I see
Why why
Why are you in control of my doggerel?
But for what reason
And what sanity
Can burst out the bubble in my head
As I dream another sleep
In the arms of dreaming
And so I break the morning
With daffodil sunset
My worthless ancient
Crying desire
I want you to see
What I have done
though I believe
My works I offer
Wouldn’t even leave a scratch
And to the damage worth undoing
My unworthy heart would create
But a speck in your mind
But the puzzlement still linger
There’s something in your entity
That showers my existence
With a painted sunset
But would I ever know?
You left me with but an insinuation
And I’m unable to believe my own wonder
At the wonder of you…
