Taken by a dream,
Captive held and made to want and made to wish
Made to hope
When hoping is hopeless
And but a death, a stain of failure
Stinking and dragging down
Down down lower sinking into sadness so it’s only
Wish I didn’t dream
Wish I didn’t want
Dream instead of being content
Unchallenged by false hope and dreams
Of things I’ll never have
No hope but this
For no bitterness
For dreamless sleep and rest
To not want
Come find me, I walk the furthest shore,
Wandering where the wind cannot reach,
In stillness I wait on the endless beach.
Weighing grains in hands, sands run no more,
No place to go, not behind, not before.
I have sipped the juice of the heavenly peach,
Afraid, alone, I can't traverse the breach,
The slow river dammed will no longer pour.
Held in silence, no breath, I'm changeless,
Confined and constant, measuring no beat.
Once warm, once violent with life now less
Than nothing, and still I have no retreat.
Futile and grasping, I'll make you ageless
Come find me, forever incomplete.
