Cave Words – 5th August 2022

In a world of its own
Adjacent to meaning
In a place of potential
Thoughtful gleaning
For there lies a greater truth
Just beyond our understanding
A song has its own life
Awe and wonder in tension demanding
Vibrating words hold a promise
A metaphoric form concealed
Trusting to intuition
That someday will be revealed
Sometimes truth is too severe
To even live upon the page
So take this poetic radiance
As your courage to engage

About 90% of these words were pilfered from Nick Cave and his Red Hand Files in a response to a question about lyrical meaning.
