I waited for Elysium
to flow from where I lay
untroubled waters lost in space
in a new place each new day.
Untroubled thoughts I never saw
bestill my tempest mind
as shades bestir the captive heart
in unmoving, restless time.
When to awaken I’ll bury forth
my made unborn to sow
to forge the petals of that very heart
with fire down below.
‘Til then I’ll sit here in my shades
a lazy companion I
with all the presumption of a smile
for those who happen by.
