I dreamed of times of lying in the grass
and the rain was falling on either side of me
where the sun fell upon my face
and I spread my arms to where the rain
gently fell upon my fingertips.
I laid like this a while, as time was slowly slipping past
and the air was softly blowing words to me
carrying me far away to a place I was glad to go
where I was a tidal wave crashing into everything.
God, and then there were tenterhooks dragging into me
trying like the damned to bring me down
and the pain was scraping and tearing me
as I scrambled and climbed desperate to be free.
I grabbed into the muddied grass and held on tight
and I breathed through the waves of time crashing over me
anxious for the rain to pass over me
and I felt myself rising higher and higher
taking everything I could see and burying it inside of me
and once I was full with destroying everything
I vanished back into the horizon just a girl upon the grass
the rain on either side of me and anxious to see
what another day will bring to me.
