PROTEUS by Chris Horne 2012

Show me all the things I need to know
Bring me to a place where I can fade into the crowd
A pantomime to awe and enthrall
Speechless as the lights come on

A curiosity out there for all to see
“that’s more than you have earned” is what they
told me as a child
Label me with bravery, such perfect misery
Call me courageous, I never asked for this

Although the elephant seems sad
His eye reflects the world in the end
Echoing cathedrals in my head
I’m writing this to let you know you’ve always been my friend

Your world is not the one for me
And what I have become is worn upon my sleeve
The years of sitting sleep and then it called to me
The damage has been done at least I’ve known your Love

Although the elephant seems sad to me
His eye reflects a thousand years, as though he’s reached the end
Echoing cathedrals in my head
I’m writing just to let you know you’ve always been my friend
Shown you all the things you need to know…
