I found myself lost in a desolate land
A place where your smile could not eclipse the sun
Where your laugh could not pierce the resonance
I walked and I dreamed of your kiss

The night was caressed by a cool breeze
Frightening it seemed how cold and unforgiving
A breeze such as this could seem to be
To a lost lovesick rolling stone

I wandered at the feet of the giants who stood
Looking aimlessly toward the sky
Sending beacons of power and worth
To the heavens above the earth

Could you see them from your location?
I wondered as a passed the insects and parasites
Who feed on the lonely ramblers in the night
Salivating at new prey that pass their filthy nests

I traveled through a Forrest surrounded by walls
Of concrete and glass, of light and noise
A forest with boundaries like no other
Finite freedom and contained peace

And as the depths of the earth seemed to rumble
Below my poignant and weary feet
I was reminded that beauty is only skin deep
That ugliness exists in every heart but yours

I continued to wander this cold strange place
Of lonesome dirt and decay
And it reminded me of why I love you
And why, with you, I will always stay
