The singer


She treads fearless in the musings
Of a myriad true silent screams
Bereft of the knowledge
Naked under the open skies
Wrestling still in the openess

A cry in the dark
A murmur above

She sings the songs so wild
Slicing open distant memories
Cleaving them in two

Whispers in the night
Whispers from a shell

She wanders in corridors
Ever turning, ever yielding
Finds nothing she searches for

So the distancing comes
Black in woven hate
Covers everything in a cloak
Of bitterness, lost, afraid

She sings pure songs so fearful
They cut her like a knife
Her voice cries down the ages
Still silent like the grave

A cry gives vent to despair
A call gives rise to eternity

And so she sings all the songs
The waiting wish to hear
Hounding her, draining her
The lines flood out beyond
Blues turn into the darkest black

Pools of trickling blood
Wailing in the dark

She remembers nothing spent
In the phrases that she sings
Alone to the waiting faces
That raise her above all else

A cry in the night
A murmur in the dark

She wanders listless home alone
Distant thoughts so silent swept
She hums a sober distant tune
A song lost in the tide of time
