The Watch Maker…
Let me be, leave me alone, I'm Him, leave me alone.
I'm in pain; let me be, let me be, on my own.
All the time, every night, only see vanished sights,
Let me be, being alone, tired of silent nights.
In this world of darkness, I feel pain and sadness.
Nothing there in my heart, only beats emptiness.
In this sad cave of time, I suffered from my crime.
I suffered with this pain, loneliness, all the time.
Time is pain, I feel trapped, I cannot face the fact.
Who am I? Watch maker, I don’t know how to act.
Fault me not, if I did, what I did for my own,
I am here, lonely nights, sleepless, all alone.
What I did in my mind, I made it partly blind,
I made it for my sake, what I hoped yet to find.
I have dreamed a shiny sun, shiny sun, seemed like fun.
No more fear no more fright, a good deed I have done.
With the light I can see, lushes land full of trees,
Shinning jewels red and green, dancing with morning breeze.
I made birds flying high, no more pain no more cry.
Rainbow near, out of clouds, ocean there in the sky.
I made grapes; I made wine, holy wine suits me fine.
I made sobers, I made drunks, drunks for me are divine.
I gave love; I gave truth, to all men sins of youth.
I gave life, I gave death, I gave all reckless truth.
Do not bother me tonight, I’m dreaming of the light,
If I wake up tonight, all your days will be night.
I need you more than I; if you live I don’t die,
Who is it? You or I; if we’re one both can fly.
Am I drunk, maybe mad? Let me be, I’ll be glad.
Don’t wake me from this dream; I will be so so sad.
The painting is called The Watch Maker, it is acrylic on canvas...
