Let Me Pretend – Author Mark Heathcote


Still, waters, moon reflected

Let me swims through you

And drown my sins in their sorrow

In their darkness, I have swum

Owning nothing to who I really, am.

In their marshes, I’ve muck sunken

Clawings on some distant shores

Wolven, I have fed howling

Wishing I too were slain, dead

But this life hasn’t any, still waters.

There aren’t any clear pictures

One can trust with your life

But the moonlight here is serene

In this tranquil water

Let me dream, let me pretend.
