  October's Child

From The Dust Of Man Repost





*~~~~~~~~*
           *~~~~~~~~*
I dreamed inside the framework of a quiet echo
As my fingers touched the quill of your soul
I hid behind the clouds so no one would know
Of my lonely walks within no man's glow

*~~~~~~~~*
           *~~~~~~~~*

You gently untied me from pastels of blue
From an embryonic womb of darkness
You gave me to sup of morning's first dew
Soothing lost edges as no other could do


*~~~~~~~~*  
            *~~~~~~~~*
You took the nightscape from inside my head
Your sun-thoughts cloaked my apathy
In layers of strawberry, silks and red
You spun every dream from smiles of thread

*~~~~~~~~*
           *~~~~~~~~*
I climbed upon the plinth as you held my hand
You bade me follow across flawless fields
The windows of time became beads of sand
As we walked away from the dust of man
