The Poet

lyrics and music written by Kylyra

from the album 'Purple'

starbar divider

In the dustbin of the world

the poet lies bleeding.

Railing against the light,

against the night-blooming poison

stealing sacred dreams

and dew-fresh flowers.

His hands foreign things,

his mind a maze of menace;

he lost his words

to the wind.

The moon judges him coldly,

a pencil shaded figure

vomiting black ink.

The poet is no more;

only the dust remains.
