Trying Too Hard To Be Immortal

Another one from 2011 that I finished recently.

Trying Too Hard To Be Immortal

I whispered to the world
And said my secrets safe with you
Closed my eyes and turned
A golden key
Laid down to rest

But somehow
The earth had found
A way to be untrue
My secrets never mattered
To a mother cold as you

And no matter how I wished
Beneath stars or sinking moon
Not an answer
Just a promise
Of an ending coming soon

So I wandered through a thousand lives
And lived them one by one
Closed my eyes
They slipped away
I forgot where I'd begun
