I admire those who aren't caught in traps
Who can commit themselves to something else
And not feel trapped by the weight
Because time doesn't matter if you're content
And nothing is ever wasted if never spent
I admire those who don't fear their own fate
But embrace the fact that they've embraced
I haven't really eaten in days,
but I've tasted manna from heaven.
Dancing under overcast stars,
drinking the essence of oblivion.
I haven't really tried to be sensible,
or act the reasonable way of society.
But people don't seem to care anyway.
They hunger for a smile, a touch that transfer only...
Still roaming the treasures of life,
spending the few grains of hope
left inside me.
To find residues of love
that I might steal
you are but one brief moment away
from swallowing the answer
I curse the fear that pulls me back in when something of a dream blurs into real life. Scared of daring to believe this could be my reality. Outlook blurred by comfortable distrust. Disbelieve, you can't want me? Too good to be true. My heart mirrored in your heart this reflection must be false. A drawn out ache pulls down on my heart. Heavy premature disappointment. Inevitable rejection. I can't compare and I won't, can't be saved by you. No more than the awakening you offered me. Resting back into restless routine. Eyes wide shut during the day time. Only living at night in my dreams.
All I have to give
All I have to spend and invest
All that is left
All that has been
And all that has past
Flows by me like a river now
Listen as you may and may try
Though you may never hear it howl
Because like death in the night
It smiles wide at last
As it takes away with a cold hand
The moments as they seemingly pass
Because we cannot bend nor deny
The inevitability of the next day
Though we can regret and fondly remember
The memory of those days gone by
Why you may ask is all of this
An inevitability and not such a crime?
Well that would be because we are human
And it is the inevitability of time
It’s existence just like yours
Is no crime upon humanity
It simply is like you
Passing into eternity
