what am I listening to..?
the cat laughing...

long have you...

made me wander
through that lonely desert called hope...
all I ever wanted was to rest
in the shade under your tree,
all I really wanted was to dip
my hand into the cool
waters of your soul,
all I really needed was to hear
the words of your promise,
set to that song
I wrote just for you.
Just something that simple.
But you'd rather that I run
through rocks and sand,
till I fall over into my own shadow.
I'm too tired to fight off
your vulture that stands
over me now,
it's head cocked, listening
for my last breath.
I can't believe you want
me to die with sand
in my shoes.
