lyrics

In Amber

This phrase, unwritten
These words, unsaid
These nails, so bitten down
These teeth so ground – something in my head
These eyes unseeing
That sound unheard
That thought I’m fleeing from
Impaled upon –or is that the right verb?

This wait, impatient
This pause so cruel
Silence so latent, but
Somehow it’s not – essence is all
This letter’s loaded
This hand in glove
Fingers all poking through
Reaching out, reaching out for love

This screaming silence
In soundproof howl
That passive violence cuts
My own heart in two – feels like that now
Locked out of action
I’m lost in time
Entombed in traction like
Insect in amber, stuck fast and supine.
