Explaining Death
One day
The lonesome horseback riders
Drift upwards under the secrecy of the fog
Creeping from the hidden black sea
Ascend the rugged cliff sides

One day
Shed tears drown out a raven's call
Extracted discoveries interrupted
Forgotten past brought forth
Torture until the end

One day
Taken and stolen
Ended while the koto was played
Buried without a granted wish
Snow blanketed the warm coffin

One day
There will be no one
To explain to you
What happened to me
And I'll be gone
