A Brand New Dawn


A brand new dawn

Of our desire

A brand new sea

A brand new fire


As the light shines

On the tundra

And melts the frost

And ends the thunder


My discourse with

God in heaven

Has left me fearful

Of the seven


But brand new dawns

Have cleared my head

This is not

The end, the end


Another lonely day

That I should pray to see the morrow

Come and steal away my sorrow

In its impossible way


In the lonely chasms

Of grey and lifeless dreams

Of the many tears and seams

Of our believable phantasm


Another lonely day

Like a worm with its aggression

Laying in hollow obsession

With nothing else to say


A brand new madness in the air

While all the birds will flock my way

Yet leave me one more lonely day

Of hopeless, bleak despair


A brand new madness in the sky

That I am writhing with distortion

That I am riddled with contortion

My body lying out to fry


A Manor fraught with haunts and fright

I cry that I am living here

To my blood, I am too near

My dawn has too soon met the night


A brand new madness in the sky

That I am once more plagued with beetles

That I am poked with pins and needles

Until there is no asking why


Take thy life within me out

I need not any solidarity

Leave me in my gross vulgarity

My being’s in its own blackout


A raging fire, my desire

I’ve since given in to ire

Why’re we so independent

As to say we needn’t love


I’ve seen my soul a barren wasteland

Bombs keep dropping on its heartland

Faces stand to say that they have seen

The final turtle dove


A brand new dawn is here for me

My body needn’t sear for me

Fear for me no more, my being

Now is safe at last


But I’m back to this world

Were my private hell unfurled

Swirled around in my brain

That moment will for many years to pass


The world of man’s in twilight

We must replace the murdered skylight

Why light up the world when you

Are followed close by shadow


Lay me to rest in the flower bed

Let them steal the thoughts from my head

Dead are the dancing visions

I have sadly come to know


Let me stop my search for truth

This was only in my youth

Forsooth it lasted short

Not seconds lying on the lawn


But now I sleep eternally

The killers that slew internally

Burn for me and their sins

And my death the brand new dawn
