Once upon a time, your
would've been enough
to drive away all my fears
Once upon a time, I could
rest my face against peeling barks
and cry, watching my tears sinking into you.
Once upon a time, oh, there are so many things
I don't want to talk about, not now.
I see them destroying you,
taking away all that I had cherished.
All the bitter hopes and dreams, disappearing
like wisps of steam
Smoky sands replace the rich brown earth
I once loved to dig my feet in
I choke on air I cannot breathe, air
which doesn't have the sweetness
This doesn't seem like the Utopia I dreamed of, the world
I wanted to live in
I want a better world.
