One Moment


I held onto my sanity as those words threaten to spill

It’s like walking on wire hanging above the deadly hill

The panorama is mesmerizing with a deadly sting

And yet it’s the greatest moment I could sing

I yield, I yield...

I yield to the the venomous touch amidst all the dream

even if I were the moth diving into my final pyre

I dream, I dream...

I dream for her silhouette that dazzles like kisses of the breeze

for that one moment is where my heart would finally find its peace
