I wish the universe could speak So it could lift the veils that shroud us

And whisper to us the secrets of existence 

As you begin to divulge the secrets of those mysteries 

Another veil is cast upon them by those words 

What casts the shroud over comprehension ?

Not being in the depth of this moment 

Like trying to wash away blood with blood 

I who am a confidante of those intimate with Him

Spend my days breathing in a cage

You appear self less , drunk and in despair 

What caused this distress ? How did you sleep last night ?
