Jazz Speaks



Through ageless eons

My eyes did weep

Looking for you

I wandered in my sleep


Through ageless eons

My words did soothe

Until one day

Distracted, you were through


Behind a barrier

With stars more numerous

Than a single inch of black

Could comprehend




And you slink back, hide your face

Disillusioned, your eyes droop

You become lethargic

And let the waves consume you


And behind a barrier

Light humming softly in the dark

Light from this barrier

Becoming your new star


And I wonder

Through ageless eons

When YOU will wander into sleep

And be one with dreams again


And I watch

As you slumber

Awake, behind the night-time sun

Tick away your years without any fun


And I wait

Patiently, as I did before

I wait for you to awaken, refreshed

Before your years are forlorn


And I've seen you

In the noon-time sun

Shrink away, and shy away

Angrily restless in the natural light


And I've told you

I've whispered

That the barrier

Is a screen


And I've told you

That it's a tool

A thing to use

A thing you don't have to always see


And in anger

Or out of spite

You slip further

Into your awake comatose sleep


And you drink

Or you smoke

Hiding, away further into the night

Pressing me away


And I am the desire

For something more

What the Lord, the World, has promised you

If you step away, and walk out the door


And instead

You drink

Or you smoke

Hiding, pressing me away


And ageless eons

I've waited for you

Just as you are

Breathless and new




Through ageless eons

The power in your hand

Send a message of hope

Of love and see where it lands


Through ageless eons

My eyes did weep

Looking for you

I wandered in my sleep


Through ageless eons

My words did soothe

Until one day

Distracted, you were through




Or so I thought

Until I met you.
