I can see and sense my new way of being
I can feel and recall the power of seeing
The veil of “my thoughts” have lifted
Something profound in presence shifted

Seeing the world clearly isn’t what you think
The taste of the drink, is just the taste of the drink
There is no craving, fantasy, or filter
The simplicity throws you off kilter

I'll stay here for now to see what's next
Presence is a moment, without context
Uncertainty is now my friend not my foe
I take a step forward, let's see where we go
Sometimes we don't know what to expect when we change. The world can be more simple than we ever imagined.

be astonished by the capable, healthy eyes looking at you
stop hiding behind the facts
facts, that caring is crucial for survival
we must find a way back to caring and supportive actions
what happened to us....?

He liked pringles.
So she thought that it would go
Straight to his heart.
What? What is this paper? Maaan, I just wanted pringles.
I see now.

Saw it unfold before my very eyes

But it happened too quickly for me to wrap my life back up into the neat little box it was packed in
Pandora doesn't go back into the box

They used to shine so bright.
Her smile used to greet us more.
Her words used to be so kind.

What has this cruel world done to you?

People thought it only existed in fairy tales.
She found it cliché.
He brushed off the very thought of it.
But then it happened.
They happened.
We happened.
And we never expected it.

it's late
the lights whet dim
you're at a party
probably with your hands
around another girl's waist
but i'll act like it doesn't hurt
act like i can pretend
that last night didn't happen
it's late now
the sounds coming from the street
i can hear them
drinking, taking shots
i know you're at the party
drinking to forget
and i hope someone passes you by
because i can't act like
it doesn't hurt me
i can't act like i don't want you
but it's too late
my phone is dark
now im at the party
trying to find you
pushing men off my waist
but you'll act like you don't want me
act like you can pretend
last night didn't happen
but we were too late
and you're standing there
feel your eyes tracing my hips
and she's all over you
but i won't act like you don't want her
won't act like she isn't me
but maybe i wasn't late
because you're next to me now
you couldn't act like you didn't want me
i couldn't act like i had no feelings
and we just happened
to be right
on time
whatever you're doing now
I can't change it
but I won't deny it
I just won't be late
