can I like just
go in a forest
or will they
It's incredible, if not amazing...
How you can feel so surrounded by the people that enclose you
But still feel empty and alone...
Knights of adolescence
Breaking through the
At a concert full of people
All gathered for the same reason
I still manage to find a way
to become lonely
The chants and whistles can’t
Tune out the screams
of my shattered mind.
How i dream to be surrounded
by the mist of mystery
She was a mystery.
She gave me her heart to understand the type of music she listened to.
Her playlist was filled with trap beats before it became fashionable.
The rattling of empty trunks.
The rattling of sticker covered tags.
This is how I saw myself before she gave me a pair of headphones. I asked her for more.
Not liking the way track six ended.
Track 7 and 8 captivated my heart.
Keeping it all to myself.
She fooled me.
Her playlist composed of the same beat over and over.
9 tracks with something added.
Another taken away.
Overtime it would become all that I listened to.
Her influence over two rocks shaken in a can.
Beginning to nod my head and cut the volume to the max.
I played it at work. I listened to it in the car.
A natural disaster to those that I passed.
The rattling of my trunk almost non-existent.
A more crisp sound coming from the speakers.
It was Summer.
Before I heard her playlist in the hands of someone else.
She placed her heart inside of the music knowing I'd stumble across it first.
Unsure if I'd ever find her love.
To participate in the aggression of her love.
The originality of all that she was.
I listened in silence with the headphones she gave.
To be surrounded by everything I love all at once
Old buildings weather youthful storms
And trees bear more children than we’ll ever know
Humanity is not a curse
But a whisper down an empty hall
No shadow lies without intent
Or climbs beyond a human’s back
And though we bend and break with age
We are born again just to take it back
How needlessly we weave between
The bitter roots, the grass and trees
Sit at the base of life content
And remember all which you’ve seen
Because we leave our better trees
To depart the earth into the soil
And though we hope to forever stand
No building will ever endure
No, in the end
We all will break and fall again
Crashing down. In due time. Regardless of certain things.
You're at your lonliest when you have people beside you.
Gripping the clouds
To fly upon their wings
Every time it sings
Tell me father
Tell me now
Show me the way
Show me how
To show them the light
Teach them when to bend
Advise them when to fight
We demand change
While staying the same
Want the power to fight?
Pick a different flame
A reflection of the times
I’m a planet.
I, like them, feel surrounded.
Surrounded and Isolated.
How is that even possible?
I used to think being alone was hard.
Now I realize that I feel alone in a room full of people,
and that’s even harder.
I worry my planet is missing something.
Missing the will to keep moving.
But I know that I must, for I am a planet that will not burn out.
