“…here the music you will never hear.”

-Starry Teller

dance strike light night

twinkle twinkle in the sky

wonder magic can it happen

why did he go missing in action

war, war battle more

fall apart and blood and gore

i dreamed a dream and lost my mind

hide seek and come to find

come and find me if you dare

try, try so hard and try your best

never ever stop to

rest, rest is for the dead who fought and

danced and died in war

tore my clothes and wept some more

he is gone why is he gone

i danced and he was there

i pirouetted and he disappeared

my back was

turned, turned spun swirled

dark brown hair wrapped in curls

deep green eyes like fresh cut grass

pass ash into dirt

back to the earth

i lay your body in the earth

dust of dust below the stars

i strike the stars sun moon and mars

at night

weeping night

weep at night

wail whale wish me well

pennies in the wishing well

water daughter growing fonder

fall in love falling

harder, hard earned trust will only rust

only once will i wander

wonder under the sky full of thunder

wonder what might be

if you were here to hear the music,

here the music you will never hear.
