The passage of time
Of lines in the road
Or trees on the horizon
Or years gliding
Through dim tunnels
And dark underbrush
How far we travel
How far we’ve come
(I will never not mention this song when given the chance)
There’s something here.
I can feel it seething just below
Writhing and hissing and trying to throw me off
Passing fear is replaced with adrenaline
I grab handfuls of smoke
But it curls between my knuckles
Escaping into the void
I know it’s not vicious
Those gnashing jaws and underbelly growls
It’s all for show
They gave me one wish.
I didn’t have to think at all.
I leaned in to the candles and blew
Sending my wish flying
Out the window
Into the sky
Where I have no doubt
It tumbled to the ground
Landing at your feet
As no more than a whisper
For you to care
It nestled into you
Carving space in your soul
A silent uprising
An unsettled toll
Still you moved on
Unswayed by the thought
And in my dreams
I love you Ok Bye Until one day The ignition doesn’t turn over And we’re all dead on arrival. Hi … Ok … Wait, you never said … Bye
We travel these paths, burdened with purpose and prose, in hopes that we’ll not long travel alone.
In your eyes I find a spirit, a soul, a beacon that flashes through the darkness of my night.
A thousand words I know but not one that can express the way my soul reaches for yours.
Are our arms enough, will we be able to reach, when our spirits entangle across this space?
In my bones I ache, every inch of my being screams to stay, rattling my steps as I back away.
Because we’re just people, different, incomplete and the sum of our moments is lost on me.

You asked me how I knew
But I can’t answer you
This life has always torn us apart
Pictures, songs, art
The ebb and flow of loves tide
One beautiful memory at a time
There are two sides to everyone
You’re so close, yet so far
What my heart would give To finally feel at home
And a picture that might not make much sense here
Errors I know well
More literally They mean wandering Meandering Through a life The outcome not specified
RDP: Error I’m not sure this even makes sense outside my head
Somedays I feel I’m no different
Than the me you left behind But whose fault is that? Not yours, must be I.
