This black bird, this pillar of doubt
A swollen stain and two engulfing mouth.
Grain of sands, poised on a capillary edge
White knuckle grip, unbreakable pledge
Shards of crystal piercing a vein
Mindless sliver and the crimson stain
Rhythm and harmony, thoughts becoming one
Break free and fly like the swan
That clichéd radiance, brilliance embraced
Interlocked fear, unification retraced
Long lost and not found, nothing to regain
Spring! warm water, welling up in pain
Hidden secrets, uncovered and bared
Truth, concealments left unspared.
Touch like an angel on heaven's street
Wings to fly, and lift you off your feet.
Rendezvous at that corner stone
I won't be there to pick a bone.
