It seemed to me, my vision and my mind
A template to project into the world
Brought you into being by my side.
I miss you, love, so slow the seconds wind.
I crept into the space between the words
I made you in my vision and my mind
Is there only chaos, no design?
Are we dust around the spaces whirled?
I bring you into being by these lines
I smell your skin and see your eyes alive
I move my head but you have disappeared
It seems both from my vision and my mind
Why did all the pit props fall down blind?
I crept beneath black coal, with darkness smeared
A person alien to humankind
Where is death, when it’s no longer feared?
What is love, when no-one else is here?
I imagined you in vision and in mind
Reality is so much more unkind
