king face

you sat down on an unwanted discarded milk crate
you drew the faces
pale, happy, sad and hungry faces
they came from far away to see the spectacle

deep inside
my heart kept on beating
wanting, yearning for just a piece of your soul
but i can only imitate and disgracefully mock your soul
you are a rock

overabundance of love and imagery has hurt you
and at times it has trampled all over your bones
they have called you worthless and crazy
but today i will call you KING

did you know that the sound of your milk crate
scraping against the pavement
reminded me of the song "Money" by Pink Floyd?

all the money in the world couldn't buy me these wings
these wings they sing songs of joy
and at times shatter my fears and bring some heavy black tears

tonight, i will fly away to that place you talked about:
do you remember?
before you died in that dreadful car accident
you had life
you laughed, you sang, you cried and at times you even held my hand

they told us to forget about the past
they told us we couldn't have wings to fly
they lied to us over and over again
and then as we walked by them i whispered in your ear
"all the money in the world couldn't buy me these wings"
