What golden sorrows are mine
born into these fragile emotions
verily, verily we advance into them
please said the night to the morning
let me come into you.
I followed my heart into these dreams…
if they ask for knowledge
of what I discovered,
tell them I received pleasure
from wind blowing through leaves
watching them move in their ways
I was accused of being guilty
for seeing them fall
as I walked from sidewalks
they offered me pills instead of food
and I learned what it was to eat words
I searched for them everywhere
and they made my love complete
I awakened each morning into greater
and greater tragedy
I learned to laugh at myself
it was all I had.
What golden sorrows are mine?
