Funny how time and tide doth turn For a fool who tries to mask a burn In smile, in laugh, pretended peace While maggots feast in leisured ease. I knew my doom was tightly sealed The day I dreamt the dreamless dream I watched my spirit caged and wheeled Away beyond the bridgeless stream. I wish I had a token left A shred of me before that theft To give to you my treasured friend For all your woes for being my friend. I wish, I wish, I wish I can I know, I know, I know I can But how? But how? I know not how. I bleed to see the future now!
