hey. haven't been posting here in a(long) while...

You are sand.

When autumn tears at my coat
And leaves bury the roads
I can't help but think of you

Because there's an ancient belief, born in the desert,
Where the night is vast as the ocean above you
It is said there‘s a tree growing on the moon
And each time a leaf falls,
Eyes pour salt,
A lifetime crumbles to sand
In an hourglass that won't be turned again

So when autumn tears at my coat
And numerous leaves bury the roads
I think of you and your capsizing boat

the 'old belief' thing does actually exist.. it's a Somali belief. at least I've read that in a book.
and the other part ... happened, you know.

cheers,
bluenightangel

:shock: (speachless)

There's a thin fine line between hate and rage.
Now watch the line be crossed and break!

thank you all very much:)
I'm glad you like it.. especially as it means a lot to me.

yes, +lost beginning+, I did try to add a bit more but couldn't come up with anything that would be worthy of it. so i just hope it can stand as it is.

thank you again.
take care,

This is really good. There's something about the mood it puts me in that I just love. Can't really explain it though.. Not much else to say. Great job!
Oh by the way.. do you have music for this?

great stuff.....I can imagine this done with very minimal backing, just a single guitar, bass and very little drums......and some nice doomy minor chords.....
