My body carries your words still under the burial of daily living Sensory overload to forget that you still hold the power to cause ripples in my still water mind Do you remember that day when the sun failed to settle down so as to not take away your light and then we slipped into a shared dream that unravelled into a nightmare of all the angst we buried underneath our love My mind carries the cause of your tears The decade of your doom that you brushed aside to forget that the dust settles down from the air until the gust of wind arrives to tip you off balance from the summit of your fickle foundation of a dune And I see you now walking away into a mirage but you never go out of sight so you never go out of mind As I sit here collecting sand and filling up a reflection of your wreckage so I can be tipped off balance as well so I can walk into a mirage as well with you but without you.
