I saw you in a cloud today
in the sea of pallid blues
circling 'round the filthy sun
so lackluster of your hues

I heard you in the rain today
in a crowd of wayward ghosts
they were cursing in their breaths
as you sang from distant coasts

I smelt you in the snow today
in a silence that was screaming
echoing with bygone scents
of the nights that had me dreaming

but I didn't taste you in forever
so I tread your way down south
to take back the planet's kiss
that had binged you from my mouth

and I don't feel no begging arms
that long to hold me in embrace
all I've left is bound and bordered
by the linings of your face

my bonds are knit with threaded lies
but the rope they braid is true
for I'll use it to descend
down the soil that swallowed you.
