,

i close my eyes
softly, softly,
softer this time
my dreams long gone
left me here
to die
with the echoes
of a promise
but only
lies

i close my eyes
slowly, slowly
a ship capsized
and keel-hauled under
a corpse still
tied
mouth gaped open
in an endless
cry

i close my eyes
silent, silent
i will not rise
but stay in a grave made
by my fall from the
skies
a warning from icarus to
watch where one
flies
