Human feeling

Paris café.
Our last rendez-vous.

/rainswept, backwardscripted windows/our shrunken heads reading signs and lips 
one last dance . broken steps / before your eclipse 

was there thunder in your ears?/ mine were full of sand, not hearing/ 
what your silence said/ and if I turn around, your mouth open/ 
no sound. your eyes screaming/ retreating into blackness 

a day too late, your news found me at home./ 
mind bubbling up/ angry water refusing a stone/ 
and then revenge/ I felt life surge in my veins/ 
a hunger you would never taste again 

did you lose your faith in love?/ 
did you lose faith in human feeling?/ 
silence./ did you lose your trust in truth?/ 
did your heart find no way to healing / like I lost you? 

you left your lovers close behind/ 
all twisted up in time, you crossed the line./ 
it's all we have this thin twine./ then nothing/ 
just the emptiness you carved / your spine a lonely blade 
in space/ to the end a dancer/ beautiful face begins to fade/ 
thanks you for being my friend/ beautiful face begins to fade
