Dead Water And Fire In The Sky...

Dead Water And Fire In The Sky...

I read about it daily,
"Will we ever find it in our hearts to create Paradise?"

Every burn mark we put upon the sky,
A tattoo upon the dark side of our souls,
Blind as we are to the crab skeletons,
Sinking to the bottom of seas devoid of oxygen,
We swim with the jellyfish and wonder if they sting,
A constellation of undulating crystalline flesh,
Reminding us of our hand in the hand of death.

They say the next time will not be a flood,
All you have to do is see the rainbows,
Yet fire in the sky is certain,
A result of our own evils,
An evil I call ignorance,
Even when it's purposefully a result of intention,
Sadly because there's another possible dimension.

I can see the song inside my head,
A vision of beautiful green and blue,
Spring and soft tides awash in gentle smiles,
A future where hearts of steel are molten,
Becoming reeds and grasses and alive,
Bending on gentle breezes and strong winds,
A field of brothers and sisters in a multitude of colors,
Leaning in hurricane or sunshine,
Cushioning each other,
Not a single stalk to fall,
Because there was no cruelty left at all.

I know it's never about what you can get,
If you treasure what you've got,
If we've got each other,
Then the Apocalypse can finally get lost,
Back where all nightmares belong,
In the empty nothing where bad dreams belong.

Words are the mind's bridge - it's connection to the universe.
Love is the heart's bridge - it's connection to all other souls.
Loving words can work miracles.
