there will be mountains you wont move 2017

since you sent me godspeed 

things appear clearer 

 

when things appear clearer 

I realise 

 

you really have let go of the claim on me

 

the truth 

undressed 

 

in a time that was about to come 

I would come to mourn our missing actions

 

actions for whatever reson were to be done 

in a time that never came

 

they were chosen to be done with you

 

Im standing infront of a mountain

an unclimbable mountain infront of me

that has to be moved 

 

a mountain in-between us

newly petrified 

 

cool enough not float

warm enough to burn

  

is it the mountain Frank sings about

the mountain my ability wont move

 

he sent me godspeed

glory

 

with force I try to move the rock 

with force not even the gravel leaves

new path 

 

not a singel sliver 

 

by its heat I evaporates 

to a cloud floating peacefully in the air

 

in peace the cloud is floating 

over pointed ridges    

 

driven by the wind 

driven by godspeed
