Under The Sky

Eternity Awaits

Uncover the world beneath

never look back my love, the

death you’re coming to lingers

eternity calls you even if you’re not

ready for it

to come, you’re going

home at some point, I’ll

escape too

so never fear this fact my life, you

know we’ll be free soon, and

yesterday won’t matter

In the gardens we wander

wondering at the beauty

watching the decay creep in

to sully the faces of the roses

that have turned their faces to the sun

the ghosts we’ve left behind

play among the tress no

as we look up at the naked branches

there’s nothing to hold onto now

as we’re becoming untethered from this world

the darkness is ours now

and nothing of this beauty comes with us when we go, so

Evening falls now and for us

time is stopped, the world of night

enervates the dreams behind our eyes

reveals the worlds we long to be in


I know I’m going

to be free from

yesterday soon enough

Any moment the

waves will crash on the shores

any moment

we could be swept away in
