haunted skies

image host

have you ever stood inside a cloud
heard its heart
under the shade of moonlit skies
it's a rare beauty
like a haunted ghost
or a waltzing serenade
played out on strings
for a bride
walking down an aisle to no-one

have you ever stared inside a storm
seen its eye
in the midst of chaos and destruction
it's painfully beautiful
like the emotional wallow
of the guilty
or a suffering priest
isolated from the world
looking down the cross at on-one†

have you ever smiled inside a dream
felt its warmth
by a moment of staggering grace
it's beautifully balanced
like a soulless glamour girl
or an abandoned reincarnation
gathered in ominous silence
just in time for the big reveal...

...have you ever stood inside a cloud
