Last Leap

Built by need
Desires kept deep
I gave up my soul
In my last leap

Just a hollow tunnel
My tired body put to sleep
Blocking heartache
In my last leap

Emptiness consumes me
Memories I no longer keep
Rejected by no words
In my last leap

Slain by stupidity
By a mountain so steep
I will die in the desert
In my last leap

Cast me into eternity
I have sewn all I can reap
As happiness rejects me again
In my last leap
