An Empty World’s Waltz.
I would wrap you the gift of an empty world
So you’d have something to call your own
I would set you apart from these nameless battalions
I’d call you a universe
I’d leave you alone.
I would love you from distance too far to define
Let you live for the sake of your living
I’d kill to repent for your loss of time.
Our sun gave life with the rain
Our collaborate minds were aligned
Our war gleamed in red with beautiful gore
Our peace would expand my beliefs
I would wrap you in unexpandable deceit
Though I would drift so far from your innocence eye
So I empty it out
Twist my crumbling spine
So wrap me in something
Usurp my desperate signs
Gift me a life beyond my hold on your mind.
I would wrap you in the leaves from the skyward limbed peak
I’d scorn you pink-faced
I must cast you out
If I am ever to empty your world
One last kiss on the mouth.
