The horizon is falling in, I run as fast as I can but still it catches me.
The water is rising I am fighting for my life as I am tossed on this sea.
All my hopes are lashed to a horse that will never tire
A beautiful horse midnight black fast as the wind with eyes like fire.
The roses bloom around me alas they are devoid of colour
The water smells rancid and my skin has taken on a grey pallor.
I am striving to survive but I am sinking in the mire
Just when all seems lost the sun brakes through and sets the world on fire.
The horizon crashes to a halt as sunshine warms the land
The flowers take on rainbow hues as if painted by some divine hand.
I feel as if the ice in my heart has begun to melt
A peace is coming over me , a peace that I have never felt.
