Unveiling

It's taken two and a half years
For me to finally look at you
And no longer find you beautiful.

Guapa.

The thick humid
sweet eucalyptus scents.
Summer breathing through
the swaying branches.

Insects, frogs, chattering
excited conversations.
A forest,
Blanketed by a sparkling
summer canpoy above us.

Satyam, Shivam, Sundaram.

The stinging
in the back of my throat
embers sizzling
as the smoke pours into me.

Time slows.

The softness of your hands
Texture of your voice
The soothing tones
Slow words, now slower still

Satyam, Shivam, Sundaram.

Dark mane swaying free
Tousled tones of bark and twig.
Skin scented
of Cinnamon, and Sandalwood.

Eyes hazel and green
Lips and heart of fire
Spirit of the moon-sky
Bodies intertwined, writhing to earth.

Sunlight of summer,
fading into the horizon,
Leaves turn brown
The heart slowly fades to grey...

Satyam
Shivam
Sundaram...

Heart Shapes

I can still feel it
Every curve
Every sound
And the touch.

So much time apart now:

Weeks, months, years.
I walk a new path quietly
But:

My body 
is still moulded
My soul 
is still shaped to you.

If I Needed You

If I needed you, would you come to me?
Would you come to me for to ease my pain?
If you needed me, I would come to you.
I would swim the sea for to ease your pain.

Well the night's forlorn and the morning's born
And the morning's born with the lights of love.
And you'll miss sunrise if you close your eyes,
And that would break my heart in two.

If I needed you, would you come to me?
Would you come to me for to ease my pain?
If you needed me, I would come to you.
I would swim the sea for to ease your pain.

Baby's with me now since I showed her how,
To lay her lily hand in mine.
Who could ill agree, she's a sight to see:
A treasure for the poor to find.

If I needed you, would you come to me?
Would you come to me for to ease my pain?
If you needed me, I would come to you.
I would swim the sea for to ease your pain.

Faith

I'd still have you in my arms
If only you'd known back then
I'd still have your face resting against mine
If you realised there was nothing to be afraid of
We'd still have each other forever
If you could just trust in the process.

Seems Like...

Seems like all I've done is try,
and nothing ever seems right,
although I've given you much,
why is it never enough?
and so you've hurt my feelings,
the consequences of pride,
and though I've given you much,
why is it never enough?

given you love, given you much,
given you love, given you much,
given you love, you know it's never enough...

Seems like all I've done is cry,
and nothing ever seems right,
although I've given you much,
why is it never enough?
and so you've hurt my feelings,
the consequence of your lies,
and though I've given you much,
why is it never enough?

What did I do?
tell me what did I do?
what did I do?
given you love, given you much,
given you love, given you much,
given you love, you know it's never enough...

Seems like a part of me has died,
so nothing feels right,
and though I've given you much,
why is it never enough?
Messed around with my feelings,
and never seeing what's right,
and though I've given you much,
why is it never enough?

What did I do?
tell me what did I do?
what did I do?
given you love, given you much,
given you love, given you much,
given you love, you know it's never enough...

Seems like you wanna say goodbye,
were things I did ever right?
and though I've given you much,
why was it never enough?
and though you've hurt my feelings,
the consequences of time,
I'm tired of giving you much and so we fade in the dust...

What did I do?
tell me what did I do?
what did I do?
we fade in the dust,
it's never enough, given you love,
given you much, you know it's never enough...

What did I do?
tell me what did I do?
what did I do?
given you love, given you much,
given you love, given you much, given you love...

Eternal Rains Will Come

"... Eternal rains will come,
We should say goodbye...
Told me not to wait,
Unless I could wait forever,
There's no time for us,
To comfort in what was..."


~ Mikael Akerfeldt
