Played out by the band
glimpsed a fragmented past drifting from hand
subtle sadness strokes left cheek
as you walk down this lonely street.
The crash site smoulders slow
pains triumphant panache has lost its flow
from being dazed in an urban wonderland
to faith imbued with hope for future plans.
Tectonic plates move with meaning under heart
holding you close part by part
And your new pace may not erase
what’s held inside, protected behind your face.
Forever changed, remaining true
a romantic adventurer upon terrain anew
don’t believe them when they say they know what the future holds
your half smile heralds the curtains eventual close.
