a lake at the center of the earth
holds the full attention
of every unloved soul
whether dead of cold
of hunger or hate or age
the bells rings
and the inside cave
the lake fills slowly
water rushes round my feet
a slow end coming
a second grave
more than beginning
harsher than the end

please dont beg i wont explain
the life i've lived, i'll do it again
please dont beg i wont explain
back to birth my crawl begins

this bed awaits me
then i see my friend
she worked at night
she waited her life
for the right, moment
to pull her out
and give her life
my friend had eyes once blue
now full of tears
the life she knew was through
so i held her hand
the water rose
our knees now cold
had i known her pain
i'd have held her close
i'd have made her bed
and touched her brow

every dark day that filled her life
like this lake, now neck high
the fact that i am here
i wont explain
so take your guess
and let it stay
her eyes cut through me
but never saw
the mirrors i wear
to block the gentle
from ever creeping in
