I LOVE... WHO?

The place to know your heart

I LOVE... WHO?

I LOVE... WHO?


I can hear it from shore to shore how none can care more.
I feel the loss in my soul
Nowhere can be found the truth of those who speak.
I see the rise of the Sun over the horizon of a lost and forgotten shore
I feel the loss of another from far away.

I see them dance around me and try to win my favor,
Only to find deep darkness there.
Is it as deep as a well and tall as a mountain?
To be lost in the abyss of my souls delight

To know for eternity and for certainty that this is the ultimate truth.
To find the sights and sounds of lost and forgotten moments that used to be memories.
Where is the value of this hole in which the arrows of my desire stand poised and ready to strike, To crumble the foundation of civilization.

To render us into the last of World Wars?
Who here that tell me the lights delight, truly has the wisdom to strike?
Can I hold my Lady with nuclear arms?

After the dust will clear, and we see far and near, can anyone even tell that we were ever here?
In my thoughts I have seen the blinding fire of my countries wrath.
I have seen the sign in the sky of a radar blind by a searing infusion beyond any control.
Again I hear the sound of another as it leaps into the air to ride the wind upon a fiery breath.

In my hand I see the the red of the key
Hear the cries of the souls whispering to me,
Crying that I did such a thing.
I watch my scope with baited breath, waiting for a spot I truly hope will not arrive.

My commander tells that the last strike was good, only a quarter away.
I see the splatter that blinds my scope, with this goes my last hope.
In my soul I feel the loss of those who saw the flash, who felt the heat,
Those who now sleep the sleep.

I feel the earth shudder beneath my feet, as the arrows of my wrath pound deep the ground.
Again the scope is clear, my machine is still near,
In my ear I can hear a voice telling me to stand clear.

The target down, the board is now green, "SKY HOOK, THIS IS ROCKING HORSE, DO YOU COPY? THIS IS A MESSAGE IN TWO PARTS... LOOKING GLASS COMMAND SECTOR GREEN... DO YOU COPY SKY HOOK?"

I cannot truly listen to this voice, I can see the cloud rising over what used to be home.
Darkness enters into my heart
My partner says, " Captain, we got sixteen candles all ready to light, we're isolated let's do it."

My hand trembles as I program my heart's desire,
I turn my key, my partner and me,
My candles light, away they go, where they land, only we know.

In my ear, I can hear the sounds of silence.
It has been a year since stand down. We are three hundred days over due for a relief.
My partner and I are happy now, she and me.
We found that others did the same as we.

Now the world is at peace, all now sleep the last sleep.

Such a shame
