I lack emotion (a motion), pushed, and pulled At the behest of this endless ocean How could I ever sail the world When my mast has broken Moods swing with each passing wave No lifejacket No hope of being saved The boat is taking water Each hole a mistake All the tears I never cried Now make up this watery grave
It feels as though something has ended, Philanthropy has been expended, People are left to their own devices To sink into their own vices. It’s not right, that we’ve lost our care For how our fellow man fare; Blind to one another’s pains And entropy is left to hold the reigns. What we lost, can we ever find When we ourselves are so supine? Nevermind we’re all one soul That together form a reconciled whole, Different branches of a single tree Limbs that emblematize you and me; And when we leave the poor out in the cold, Forget and ridicule the old, Renounce our secular vows, We’re just splitting off another bough.
You ask me To build you cities When I only have Avenues of waterfalls I wish These words Could build you rafts So you could Float along the horizon At the end of the day Promises are hollow And we all sink Like ships
Everyday, multiple times you remind me of my beauty because I can no longer do this for myself. You tell me that one day I will believe these words. They will eventually sink into my DNA. You tell me the words will one day feel real and until they do you will continue on. You do not make me feel ashamed that these words are foreign to my diseased brain. While you call me breathtaking I tell myself I am not deserving of breath. Your words restore me. They keep me alive until the next dosage of your selfless reminders.
In the darkness A hand reaches out To pull you under To drag you out Or to just move closer Until you drown With your eyes closed Sunken tears Blinding light It pierces Your eyelids To your eyes You still see The sunlight Into the water You jumped in So in the darkness You're floating Sinking in further Until a hand reaches out Drags you out Across the bank And pretends to Save you But then jumps into The water And takes you with Then you're just swimming Till you're sunken.
