Under the shadow of a wing
I woke blinking at the light
And now that dark turns to night
I fear I will disappear again.
And I will catch my breath and hold it
Until I know there is no more breath
Yet another will hold it for me
Until we both breathe again.
You know I'm staring at you
Though you won't look at me
Your head is bowed low
Over Candy Crush or TV
I can wait with my empty cup
You'll remember, you'll see
You'll bob your head up
And stare full back at me
And when our eyes meet yet again
We'll create our own serenity
Only for another three seconds
That last another eternity
Never unknown again.
How could I understand
When it left my hand
That heavy burden, now lightly lost
Had released all and every cost?
The gift then revealed itself to me..
I am a constant escapee
I am a freedom loving revolutionary
I am the silent conspiracy
I am the light to a world of misery
Mine is a lost soul that swims in a bitter sea
Overlayed and swamped by waves of jealousy
Caught and held under by a rising tide of night
At the mercy of winds of animosity
Until I lose my strength and drown ashore
Foundered now ocean’s false martyr
Suns may rise, storms may fall
A light shower washes my tears away
