Sometimes I ask myself when did my thoughts and hopes of blue and green turn into violet worries, violent dispositions When did this soul with its empty bookshelf burn all its unwritten scripts of things yet to be seen and my steady solace turn into a contradiction
I know what I want in life when I see my favorite pieces of art scattered accross the canvas of my solitary nights my cold fingers once touched it and I can count it on all five I want to believe that I'd be content with really only a shard to know my dreams aren't just made of imaginary sights
My open heart drives me in uncertain directions with clear aspiration, sometimes just insane but always looking, always wanting, always one heart ahead If my eyes could only look beyond uncertainty and I'd finally see a way that goes far and will let me travel along a green country lane If I could feel as if I'd know why it seems so difficult not to be dead.
In everything that had to be broken and shed these distant promises on remote and empty shores For only the contingency of all that could be good and whole Truly not knowing where this road might have led and still keep my hands open and reaching and breathe in deeply through all of my pores let me just find one wholesome and abiding content in this burning library inside my soul
A very deep-rooted and emotional piece that just started to flow out of my head into my hands and finally on this page. I'm at a better place today, surely. But there's still so much that feels empty and uncertain and not.. quite right. And things sometimes seem so hopeless and sad in such strangely and terrifyingly normal ways. It's difficult to hold on to things that you want to live for. Here's to all the blind but necessary hope!
