Paradise

Someone will rescue me from this infinite dream, 
This eternal dance between suffering and paradise, 
One day this long traveled light will finally arrive, 
Someone will take me up in her arms and breathe me into the stars, 
I wait for her, 
I wait for her, 
Eternally cradled in the black soil, 
Lungs filled with earthly creatures, 
Here my life ends before it has even begun, 
Coughing up blood, 
Coughing up beauty, 
Dancing in starlight..
