If I told you, you were the reason…
I guess my life would have risen
From the thought of what you’d have told me
But I find myself in a prison
Unable to find my true rhythm
In my regular now and then living
Oh! What a desert, what a shame that I find nothing in my mouth to say
When I have a lot in my heart’s conclave
May be my fault, if I loose out
And though I find it hard, God gave me the part
So help me to say my lines on the pages of her heart
I know it’s real so it’s really damn hard
But I must get there someway, someday, somehow
I mean right now!
The days are evil, papa explains; in my days: hmm…
Now humans are more inhuman, scheming characterizes his existence
Even the clouds burn off with time,
Our epidermis is in the wake of an epidemic.
I see no familiar faces, of course I’m looking…still looking
But all around me is darkness; you could slice through with your hand.
From the distance I hear the cries, wailings rent the air;
Is that mama? Searching for the kids?
I feel a cold chill down my spine.
The air is still as it can be
I think I feel these things aren’t happening
But I don’t know for sure
Because I’m in the airport dozing away
On a trip to see my angel so whatever is happening,
I’m obviously not seeing, not feeling, just dreaming.
From outer space into our galaxy right down to our earth,
Come the droplets,
Formed into showers
Sprinkling on my face
With bare feet I stand.
Chest heaving and fast breathing characterize my torso
The currents already forming around and within my feet
Bearing in its wake, dry leaves
Now wet, mingling with debris
I’m clad in boxers and singlet
Surrounded by all types of flowers
Gazing at my intrusion
I feel blessed to be eerie; lines of a smile not yet formed outline my face
Because all I ever wanted was right here,
Right now in my heart
