the ides of march

the night’s a long one after loss
i’ve kiss’d the evening star goodbye
another sun will rise for me
there is no telling what it brings

i wish for light, i wish for warmth
i wish for freedom new and fresh
but i can find no sturdy thread
to weave the tapestry i want

the days like pearls that mark my time
slip from my string and scatter down
around my feet like so much dust
unnoticed irretrievable

there’s no good ending to this tale
i feel the truth down in my bones
each door i try is firmly locked
or opens onto blasted heath

but lie down dead i never shall
and wrapp’d in what strength i can call
i’ll soldier on through what remains
and hope for better luck next time
