I am the air you breathe … I am all around you … embrace me or choke on your arrogance!
within you if you care
beneath you if you dare
around you but so rare
I am the air that could push you forward or shove you under … I can work for you or against you … choose!
of being a kite soaring high
of being a raft floating by
of being an eagle in the sky
a windmill where I blow
in my energy you shall glow
breathe me; die or grow
pushing underneath your wings
giving you speed and strength
flying you in fantasies and beyond
I could be a dream come true or a nightmare that haunts you … let me show you my power … let me tell you a secret … let me show you a magic trick!
sweeping you off your feet
gliding on water to a rhyming beat
dancing where two hearts used to meet
I vow to wrap you up in dust
to sweep you off the crust
in a hurricane of rage and rust
I shall become the cloud raining on your parade
the storm rocking your lonesome boat
the wind blowing through a hole in your chest
crashing your waves on the seashore
burying your bones under the ground
pushing your down where you belong
Dear MAN … take a deep breath … I did not mean to exhaust you in my turbulence … breathe … inhale me
a soft breeze through your hair
a tender whisper in your ear
a whimper of desire and fear
Dear MAN … Thou shalt not dismiss me!
your lungs collapse in the absence of air
your face turns blue with despair
call my name if you dare
Baby … pray for air
Dear MAN … you make me laugh!
You cannot hurt me
Pass through me
See through me
I am invincible
I am invisible
I am indispensible
Air is my name
Fair is my game
Shame oh shame!
