|The wind blew and the caves howled.
The crashing waterfall silent and the silent plains screamed.
The dead heart beats and the still lungs breathe.
Nothing happens in the world that never sleeps.
The deer creeps on the grass and the wolf creeps on the deer.
The lone ear sits, never will it hear.
I stand on the water and the water stands on me.
Noisy are the streets of this silent town.
A child runs loud in the deadness of the air.
I turn to go after him but it stands there.
The shadow of my enemy frozen in the burning sun.
Does he see me while I'm invisible?
Does he smell my non-existing scent?
Does he hear my closed mouth?
My buddy taps me.
The shadow is moving.
Its arms raise with something in them.
My buddy looks at me with horror filled eyes.
I look at the shadow of my enemy but it's gone.
The little boy stands there, a rocket on his shoulder.
A tear runs down his cheek and he pulls the trigger.
I throw myself on my buddy and things go red.
I look at my body get smaller as I ascend.
My buddy is over me, trying to shake me awake.
I don't wake up and everything goes black.
