Stellar transcendence
Tonight is ride or die
You have no ascendance

Am I lost in space?
Floating through time
Leaving not a single trace

I’ll play this game
Dance in a trance
Pills with all the names

Pieces glued together
Here I am
Navigating all kinds of weather

Pacing around the house
The voice in my head shouts
Round n round in circles
Everything feels universal

Am I manic?
Is this panic?
Am I hyper?
I cannot decipher

Why can’t I just ******* chill
My mind won’t let me sit still
All sensations heightened
I hear a bang, I’m frightened

Roll a cigarette, draw it deep
The people around you cannot sleep
Feel the smoke hit your lungs
The sounds they make, are they speaking in tongues?

Sometimes I wish I knew
how to break through.

In the moment I become frozen,
wishing to put the wheels in motion.

Crumbling under heavy shoulders,
some days it feels like I’m moving a boulder.

On these days I spend time with me,
I do not mean to be an absentee

I listen to my body and mind,
slow down and take a moment to unwind.

When I think about a place to go
To be with you when I feel sorrow
I close my eyes and think of you
My heart full of feelings, red and blue

Time, a construct that forever bends
Finality, hard to accept when it comes to the end
When you left I saw a million stars collide
A never ending trail of stardust left behind

Twinkling above ✨
Sprinkling down 💫
I feel you 🌙
When you’re around 🪐

Today does not equal tomorrow.
The past does not define your today.
You know the familiarity of sorrow.
Consuming you, do not let it take you away.

Another bad day.
Do not dismay.
Discovery of self is underway.

A momentary lapse.
Do not dwell or think perhaps.
Allow yourself to relax.

These small fragments in time.
With each day you climb.
You know deep down life is sublime.

Your mind is on overdrive.  
Tomorrow will arrive.
I know you will revive.
