Outside the house there lies the moat
I’m inside looking out
Separation – is – imminent
I’ve no escape to leave

Upon the walls I write the message
For those who seek to find
Take my bones, my scattered ashes
And leave all else behind

Look not upon the books I’ve read -
My clothes, my bed, my bugs
For those who spend too much time here
Will see there is no door

And you shall lie and lie awake
And pass eternity
Wondering our similar fates
While you collect the dust

I’m gone – so gone –forever now
No bit of flesh to rot
Ages ago I took my bow
And still for you I pray.
