Mortaljive: The Rest is Silence

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

This art that grows


i live inside the dark and light
i dream about you every night
there is no talk of wrong or right
only shadows

i held you in the lover's way
kissed you up and down your face
we clenched and shuddered in our grace
just like shadows

when we walked down to the caves
we stopped to see if jesus saves
what is love, just to obey?
passing shadows?
this art that grows
this art that thrives
this gnarled trunk 
of great divine
is silent 
and then it screams
right through me
just like love
i live inside the dark and light
i dream about you every night
there is no talk of wrong or right
only shadows
  
the ghosts have gone so far away
you will not see them pass this way
there's nothing left for them to say
they're just shadows

correct me if i have got it wrong
we are the notes, life is the song
we cannot last for very long
just like shadows
just like shadows

this art that grows
this art that thrives
this gnarled trunk 
of great divine
is silent 
and then it screams
right through me
just like love
