Nearly a circle/ Bijna rond

Ellipse* / Eclipse of the mind


One morning she came to me
severe in nature's garb, so light and yet so dark. 
I'll give you eternal wisdom, youth and love, she said. 
In return she wanted my body, and entered my head. 

We had to remain seperated to stay sane, 
so she divided me to cause no pain. 
The night was hers the day was mine, 
but in the end we couldn't draw the line. 

We got confused 
and all mixed up. 
Completely out of control, 
I lost my identity, I lost my soul. 
I had to surrender to survive, 
conquer my fears to stay alive. 
Find me a brother in soul 
die with him to become whole 

I found a musician, 
I found a painter, 
I found a poet, 
I found a stranger, 
I found a brother in soul, 
and thought 

"from now on we can have it all". 

We drove as lightening but didn't die, 
reached for the heavens but didn't fly. 
Finally refused at the gates of the sun, 
We turned back to where it all begun. 

Back on earth my life was caught in her curse: 
I had to get through the genesis in reverse. 
And at the exit of darkness, returned from death 

I'd regain my body, I'd regain my head... .
