Mortaljive: The Rest is Silence

There is no still point in all the Universe, and that is the rock upon which I stand

I've Lost it All


we fell in love before the sun could even set
we fell in love without a clue for what comes next
we fell in love 
but then the sun went down

we danced as lovers in the fading of the light
we held each other and looked beyond the barriers of sight
we fell in love
but then the sun went down

i've lost it all
i've lost it all
you cannot save a man
after he falls
after he falls
i've tried to find my wings
but i've got no wings at all
i've lost it all

i looked upon your picture and tried to reach right in
i conjured up the memories of where we two had been
we fell in love
but then the sun went down

i was shaken and defeated, hollow and heartbroken
i kept dreaming of your lips and the words that you had spoken
we fell in love
we fell in love
we fell in love
then the sun went down

i've lost it all
i've lost it all
you cannot save a man
after he falls
after he falls
i've tried to find my wings
i've got no wings at all
i've lost it all


we fell in love before the sun could even set
we fell in love without a clue for what comes next
we fell in love
but then the sun went down

we danced as lovers in the fading of the light
we held each other and looked beyond the barriers of sight
we fell in love
but then the sun went down

i've lost it all
i've lost it all
you cannot save a man
after he falls
after he falls
i've tried to find my wings
but i've got no wings at all
i've lost it all

Greetings! Please note that I've posted your excellent "Lord Tree has reached a verdict!" on Contextual Criticism. Thanks so much for permission. It's a superb poem!
