The City From Afar
rating: +5+x

A view of the city from afar
so murky clear and full of lies
so bitterly sweet and full of you

I know that I can never return but
it would be nice
to visit

Alien to me but home to you
how could it be that you would leave
unless I had turned that home
into something else

What is the purpose of paradise
if there is no one to share
the fruits of the tree
but the snake
and a liar

If I am to play the part of intruder
then where is the theater
open air or closed curtain
the performance is mine
but yours is the rose
and the tomato
