Bird on a tree whisper and sing

bird on a tree whisper and sing
stood on a branch of broken means;
up on the Venice by the brook of beasts
I saw a woman of beauty unseen,while I asked
her what was her name and belief,she told me
her name was beauty and her belief was knight
all moulded in lights,mists,might
Then I saw her and got stuck in time
bird on a tree whisper and sing
her smile`s infectious,eyes contagious,
concave,kind;dreams after dreams come
stripping all of my past,present,days to come
time after time tides tie,untie
twisting,turning,traversing whistling low
high;losing,winning rhythmic nights
you cannot cover me;I am Pain;I am Lights
you cannot blame me;I am sunrise
waves after waves roll,break and bite
giving rise to breakers,bees,vim,vice
bird on a tree whisper and sing
