Echo

Each summer you were bound for the zenith

Each time I asked you, my rosy cheeks

made a mockery of the Marlboro man

 

Pain is an army of clouds

concealing northern blue saturation

 

If I turn on the light, I see you

dreaming out loud

 

How are we supposed to fill the sky together

if I drown every time you bat your eyes?

 

Somebody once wrote on a wall:

“I am not an easel”

Apply your rainbow paint and I shall

retreat into pure scarlet

 

Who will hazard a glance

once the evening dulls

the sparkle of the canvas fibers?

 

How I wish you would take me

along for the ride

 

Let me take you

 

My radiant zeppelin

You are glowing in the sky

breaking the color spectrum

 

Sense is my lifeline

with shivering hands

I grasp for it in vain

 

Will you show me the way?

 

I want to remain in your light

but my desire casts a shadow

onto the foothills of Mount Soul

 

It’s quite a hike getting up there

I can feel the winds up high down below

as I follow the breadcrumbs

strewn along the sole road

 

Birds smear the azure up above

their flight makes me dizzy

 

Who will take my hand

so that I can stave off

yet another fall?

 

Forgive me, my thoughts are sticky

but please don’t wipe them down

they’re the goo holding me together
