Ask the stars

from by Neverwhere



you left your heart inside the water
you closed your eyes to count to ten
just to find out that another
constellation leads your way
how will we learn to fight forever
how will you learn to number them all
now rest your mind
it’s time to see the stars
tricks and treats for all
then rise among the ones who never shine
the ones that live beneath the storm
nobody can take that away from you
you closed your doubts inside a drawer
and lent your nightmares to the river bank
but you couldn’t get rid of the sighing water
that follows you where you go
and it whispers soft “when will you bring
heavenly fire, heavenly flame?
and the lovers that you left outside
waiting in the rain instead
let them go and find their way home"
you pray we walk these streets together soon
though marked by the worst of faiths
on the surface lies the glare of the moon
and your voice is not silenced yet
nobody can take that away from you
