You Were No Angel

You Were No Angel

Feelings alive in the past
as real as the living while the soul
Sees the clouds around him
full and timeless, moves foggy pain
Awakening also eternal thoughts
sea and wind frozen, gull's wings
Crashing on the wearing rocks at
the water front, fixed stars in foam
Catching breath, end times delayed
drying in the sun cuttlefish filleted
I taste the salt, time itself saturated
lies go into another part of nowhere
Still you keep the mirror truth alive
without choice if it be that or nothing
