I watched you walk beneath the rushing falls
back and forth along the granite ledge
feeling the weight of the river cascade upon you...
For years I scaled the tower wall
Daring for a chance to feel the iron summit
And when I reached the top I found you
Lounging in starlight and commenting on the weather...
Point the way to paradise
The long road through sunlight.
A call in the night of silence
Lights the darkness with thought of terror
The hilltop lorded over him since the day he first drew breath
Blackened peak defiant to cobbled streets below
Eyes watching the spark of sun beyond the high ridge
