Change

.

In walls and stale air paintings render

I and in the dark surrender

To dreams that spark a sapphire flame

With the wind a book and the match, your name

Yes, visions set my heart on fire

With burning pain and burning desire

My hands trembling and my body numb

My eyes in darkness come undone

Under fire and knives and the wind of time

In a burning bed alone I lie

Foolish and wild in stale air and walls

If only to not 'feel not at all'

Days as roads take you a different direction

Than the stars you thought you saw in heaven.
