Sand and Skin

Thinking in waves
as this morning's haze
is soon to raise it's arms

and paint the sky
with golden eyes
to watch us all wake

I touch my face
feel to speak
to walls of my name

the words inside
within this tide
that seems to pull
itself back again

As the sands of time
fall in line from
cracks within a glass

swept by men
with hopes to mend
each hour come to pass

I watch them march
though their drums
they have no tone to me

as a lullaby
with shattered rhyme
lies washed away at sea.
