Remember when the world was flat and we lay upon it

And soaked our skin with stained grass and stained lips

And stained thoughts that our hands reenacted

Oh, how we acted

And we wished for gentle caress and snowy days

And bravery to do things we wished we could

We should

Your eyes peek outwards, hidden like two gems

Being born into the light, frightened of waking to an earth

With no hand to grasp

With nothing at all, nothing to clasp

They sidle along to the floor as they blur in the corner

Of my own,

Where they're home

And now the ground is made of gravel

A path we have to travel

Both alone, together alone
