For how long is beauty going to rule
this world of mine is taking a toll
seeing each day as it tumbles down
I fumble with life’s cruel manifolds

Every day I witness what I can’t see
with frequent whims of going blind
A flower I see, then I see it trampled
I salvage the nothingness left behind

In mountains of heaven I get buried
inexplicable feelings haunt each day
I crawl out into a world emptied
pieces from my soul break away

I live in moments memorable
withering away through time
I don’t fall easy, but when I do
joy and sorrow begin to rhyme

Can’t shut my eyes and wipe it off
this mind and heart will always bring
fantasies and fears in things I love
I remain beautifully entwined in.
