I looked up and you were gone, I began to rise.
In circles of peculiar shades and light you remain
All at ease with dagger dazzling eyes.

Suppose a shout will do, but these are your lies
Dancing in and aloof. Red and Blue drains.
I looked up and you were gone, I began to rise.

On my behalf a thunderbird cries,
You excuse and cough and claim
All at ease with dagger dazzling eyes.

Through closed eyes and magnificent smiles, imprints dry
Bare feet on stone scraping paths aflame.
I looked up and you were gone, I began to rise.

There are shards and splinters and your black tie
Through a slight open with no complaints
All at ease with dagger dazzling eyes.

Tedium in unspoken works, I no longer believe in sighs.
Sickened pale by foul mornings and dream stains.
I looked up and you were gone, I began to rise
All at ease with dagger dazzling eyes.
