Stairway From Nowhere

Stairs go up as well as down


At the bottom of the stairs

Where tears meet the sea

A long way from the stars

A stone’s throw from sadness

Time stands still before me

Don’t know why she didn’t come

On the stairway of my life

Nothing but ardent spirit

In the desert of my heart

Desolation and disillusion

I am history without her

At the bottom of the stairs
