Day and Night


The paradigm of youth unfurled at the fist,
Then clenched back up around the fat of my breast

So there it is,
The contents of my life's bliss
Splattered on the walls of an empty abyss
Ahh so there it is,
The contents of a lover's journal
They lied,
Someone told me we were born eternal

And if the sun hid in fear,
Would the world move slower,
And could I finally tear

Calm me,
Please,
And by morning let it fall,
Dragged by the ankles of my shadow,
A pain to enthrall
Keep me hollow,
At least my ignorance will hold companionship,
Oh what a championship

So let sleep come,
Come as a coma
Lay rest to my sullen fury,
And let die both judge and jury
