Prose - What Will You Do With Me?
The clouds had their fun
Laughing, they move merrily away
Quietly the stars have drifted
Orion asks, “Did you think I would stay?"
The sky floats silently on
Or is it me who has moved?
Where do I now stand?
The riddle remains unsolved
Another night begins anew
Orion, my old friend is back
Yet it is he who stands still
Revealing the insight that I lack
Everything is relative
Measured by another's progress
I have no power in this world
Growth an illusion as I regress
The sky has moved
And I can’t stop it
All I can do is ponder
My mind remains unlit
Yet it has come to this
I can only offer love without promise
Feeling without a future
No support for your pride
Only an embrace while you suffer
A star to see but not posses
Gone by day, with you at night
Unless a cloud drifts between us
Quietly turning out the light
Would it be enough?
When you see the oasis of passion
Where others appear to drink
While you await your companion
You begin to quench your thirst
Then the fickle water turns to dust
Leaving your heart unfulfilled
But satisfying your lust
The dissatisfaction of living for today
The need for permanence
Bring the clouds of discontentment
You need further assurance
Let it rain, let it rain
Will it wash away your needs?
I stand alone waving at our memories
Not knowing where tomorrow leads
There is nothing that I deserve
There is nothing I can ask for
I can only provide a moment
Will it be as good as before?
Only you can say
Because I can close my eyes
But will you be happy with a moment
Or believe you live with lies?
