DRAGONFLY SKIN

Wrinkling water underneath

Afraid to fall or even breathe

Is there more than meets the eye?

The God of Pain still on his throne

Things we said turned to stone

We have been sleeping deep inside

 

 

The spider’s touch weaving in

When we refuse to leave

Our dragonfly skin

Falling branches, broken trees

Sparrows chasing humming bees

Distant fires burning slow

The Queen of Silence on her throne

Reigns the world, stays alone

She has been weeping deep inside

 

 

The spider’s touch weaving in

When we refuse to leave

Our dragonfly skin

The darkness of a lonely night

Dissolves into the morning light

Welcomes the brightness of the day

The sky opening up to you

Wings unfold, the brightest blue

You will be dreaming deep inside

 

 

The spider’s touch won’t sneak in

When we accept to leave

Our dragonfly skin

Our dragonfly skin

Dragonfly skin
