The world that I once knew

I stood in the heart of the world

And I was aware

The wind danced around my ears, whispering stories of distant lands.

Green fields that ran out far ahead of me. When Summer came – how she painted it in colors and fragrances that overpowered my soul

I heard echoes of the great trees, of how they moved and swayed, always keeping watch and providing.  Stretching up towards the heavens – unwavering great beacons in the sky, they welcomed all to their warm embrace.

The wind carried to me the call of creatures, simple and small – their song filled my heart and warmed my soul.  A mother’s soft call for her young to return to the den, parents clamor as they saw their fledglings take flight.  Cries from sirens of the ocean reverberated through me and soothed my soul.

I stood in the heart of the world and I felt the wind change.
Time was approaching fast, and humans were on their way.

I stood in the heart of the world

The ground beneath me burnt my feet, the soft grass grew into concrete stones
The beacons who welcomed me home grew bigger and brighter, became stronger and harder – but their warmth was no longer.
The call which once filled my heart became a drone made by that which is not alive, the emotion of a single objective.

I stood in the heart of the world that I did not recognize or understand
It did not matter where my gaze fell – my soul cried out as it did not know

The sky, the sky, oh it’s you who I still know
You have not forsaken the love that I have always known
But even then still, I see the traces of sorrow hidden in your eyes.
Your tears no longer bring joy to my soul

I stood in a world that is no longer a world
And the only way for to me understand
Was to forget,
To forget the world which I once had known
