Random Poem:


When i look into your eyes i stand still,
practice that stillness
as i enter in your outer space,
finding it in dashing pieces of light
like the glass that breaks the early sun,
we've all had dreams and we keep dreaming
that someday the stars will fall,
then while all the crazy people are screaming
it'll reach us slowly all,
i crawl to you
passed the grey rainy clod
as the worlds crashing into the sun
and through fearsome clouds,
where hurricanes and tornadoes turn one
below the heavy whips of wind,
nuclear bombs blows but only light my way
this night sky will not be the end of us
i'll define this darkest hour,
for at this night at this time in this last line...
I look straight, I look to you, I know where I go.
