Lost To The Light

I fell asleep surrounded by words
My pillow bursting with the wings of birds
When I awoke they had all taken flight
Like so many dreams that turn in the night
They were lost to the light

I knew a man with a devilish laugh
Like rolling stock on a railroad track
That hacking cough was the cancers bite
Like so many flames that burn too bright
He was lost to the light

The light takes only the brightest things
Things that only the darkness brings
The darkest star is brighter than the sun

I knew a girl for the longest time
I never thought that she’d be mine
But we made love one perfect night

When I awoke she was nowhere in sight
She was lost to the light
