The Coffin That Beds You


How can this wound be so deep
When the fall is so steep
The heart bleeds for that selfless love
The emptiness weighs heavily
Mournfully covering the ground with blood
The eyes search for your beauty
But you rest peacefully in the coffin that beds you
You devour every thought
While I breathlessly breathe in air
Hoping it may make you appear
Memories flood my mind
Bleeding with yearn for your touch
The echos of my heart screaming your name
Yet you rest peacefully in the coffin that beds you
You are all around me
You are in the air
You are in the buzz of the bee as it flies past my ear
You are all around but I cannot see you
What a treacherous life, to feel what rules my veins
And remain physically divided from its elements
For you rest peacefully in the coffin that beds you
My dear mother don't feel alarmed by the pain that fuels me
And to hear me ask where it is you have gone
When you fly so freely in the wind
And beam so angelically in the breeze
Whispering you'll always be near me
While I learn to walk and breathe without the music of the wind
As you rest peacefully in the coffin that beds you
