Lost Sunbeams

Oh but to loosen such vibrant flows,
As locked in chains, wind only dreams
To caress such silk where Eden grows,
And awestruck follows golden gleams.

Paradise slinking near behind,
Envious sorrows for never seen
Is beauty kept in chains divine,
That would bring light to shadowed scenes.

So release your bright, melodious song,
And let it fall upon the earth,
As angels who shall never belong,
But come to save and prove their worth.

Like travelers in an alien land,
Who long for one last taste of home,
But trapped in barren fields of sand,
Return from memories, again unknown.

To keep imprisoned beauties bold,
And bury deep within the bliss
From men who’d spit on Madonna’s throne,
Myself, I weep for what we’ve missed.

To dedicate myself, in perfect chaste
And thoughtless guard, and never sleep.
What perfection lies within our race,
Still locked in chains we cannot keep.

So fly now free from mortal bounds,
And join your kin, the lost sunbeams,
But forget you not such mortal grounds,
That could never hold lustrous dreams.

Processed People

I watch the processed people, live their lives on conveyor belts.
Is it really freedom, if you’re held by invisible chains?
The man walks up and smiles, he’s got enough ‘til tomorrow.
And continues on without caring, about his aches or pains.

The girl standing on my corner, calls to wave me over,
“Does it make a difference?” she asks as she blows her friend a kiss.
Two eyes, a mouth, and a nose, she thinks more than she knows,
The blind man is truly the only one who lives in bliss.

His paper numbers thirty, though his face shows fifty,
By the time he makes it, there will be no looking back.
To sit and speak in silence, what more could you ask for?
I showed myself to the door, and looked at the stings on his back.

Start out talking madness, only then knowing gladness,
As the veil is lifted, the shroud appears to darken your eyes.
And when once more insanity, stops by, this time to stay,
It’s only because you can no longer tell the truth from all the lies.
