Written for a musical project of mine.

You died with the sun

You died with the sun
that blissful day
and I wept
but somehow
you moved on
I didn't know

It was wind and fire;
bite your own tail

I can live in the shadows
but I try to remember

You died with the sun
yet you remain
now and forever
I long and I wonder
but I know a bit more

It was wind and fire;
bite your own tail

We will meet again

A very clever and intriguing poem as tai has said. I too find bite your own tail a very contemplative line. I see through this the circle of life. I see what goes round comes round. I see completion. applaud!!


Wow! you are a clever man! lol and a great grip too it seems.

I love the title and the song will be a fine addition to your project. I am intrigued.

'Bite your own tail' is a brilliant line and I wonder the beat you will put to it?

I look forward to more.

Smiling at you,
