I found a gravestone etched with my name,

on the churchroof a man was drinking altar wine,

he told me i was dead, and taking

a drink would make me feel divine,

with a mouthful the church and sky turned red.

A woman kneeling at my grave told me i was alive,

my hand passed straight through her

she pinched me hard in anger.

whoever you are come forth these are the days that must happen to you.

...until you lose it. that's what I read here, a parable about giving up and not realising what you gave up until it's too late...

been down the road of believing I was dead already, only to find out, nope, actually I had more to lose than I give myself credit… for…

ah, hindsight, a friend of mine is fond of saying, the sight that comes out of your hind ;) …

loved the dreamy way you relate this.
