Lyre is the great rudimentary dream to keep the world forgetful it's awake.
Sunk deep in mockery, lyre, rebellion, sounds silent, roars silent, is still.
Unending bombs fall dead to the sea.
Torment is grace.
Grace is masturbatory.

Locked in a myth, in fascination, look through the iron gauze glass.
Lance your wounds, protect your scorn for a romp a time.
Lyre is deceiving! A liar! a thief!
Locked in a cell of walls and a wife, I screach, bemoan the life of lyre.

Still waking silences of dreams passing by unaltered enchant.
Snowed under by resolutions, lyre is gathered like crops, sowed as seeds, left grow to ash can angelics.

Lyre is a thief, a liar, a myth.
Lyre is still the walking silence that haunts me.
Lyre is my mystery, my sadness, the woke-up morning time get up falsetto.

Lyricism is a gift and a curse. Once made a lyre lamp in shop. With my twin brother, we had two. My mom was so proud to display them on end tables.
