I'm just throwing pennies in a well.
Wishing to stay relevant.
Like one does when
keeping up with the Jones's.
Here to fight a losing battle
with the day before me.
Because the night marked me present.
And I'm still here.
Despite all opposition.
If my mind could
stop only for a moment.
To catch its breath.
I don't think this
would be so hard.
Breathing in water has never looked so fun.
But I digress.
For I am just at a crossroads waiting to get my guitar tuned.
In the wrong place.
At the right time.
The wheel of misfortune has changed its course.
something you see.
Solely in a mirror's reflection.
I think it's how
you make me feel.
I really never wanted to be here.
In the first place
But its okay, when I'm with you.
Why waste my breathe.
When you can't listen to anybody else but yourself.
I'm not sorry for your lack of patience.
But I am sorry, you lost me.
Because when the roofs on fire
and my life is falling apart.
It's okay to be the fool.
Because he's walking off a cliff with a smile on his face.
So who's really living their best here?
I gazed into the abyss.
Only to see a demon,
staring back at me.
Of someone I was never meant to be.
In the first place.
But if only
for a moment of time.
You could take a walk inside my heart.
To gaze upon the feelings I've been conjuring up for you.
while I step out of my mind.
I'd like to be
any where but here.
Wasting away is just surrendering to the pendelums curse.
Sometimes you're swinging
forward and everything's like magic.
While other times,
you can feel your heart slowly stopping,
like a broken dream.
Crushed by the hammer we call reality.
Revelations that I am nothing more than the trash.
I never wanted to be.
