I Once Lived

I once lived
On a world where the sea
Was inky black
And the moon wept blood
For the savagery of the tide
And there I would reside even now
Had not I fell
Through the galaxy and firmament
To this fresh hell

In dreams I return
To the place of my soul’s birthing
I weep and I yearn
For this hearth and this home
In the darkness hiding
And yet abiding
In a gentleness this world’s
Never known

For one moment to touch
The naked shore and breath
The fiery, forgotten air
I remember, I recall and despair
No more to return
You evolve and you learn
It’s just a dream
You were never there
Just an burning icicle floating mid air
