I hesitate, my instincts too far beyond my surroundings
Alert, in tune with my heartbeat and the earths warnings
Now I must stop and seek cover from what I fear
Not cowering, not hiding, but living on the edge of finality it’s clear
Trust is the luxury of believers, I’m not a believer anymore, I’m here
Somewhere between safe and sound, I can no longer wander
It serves me well to stay in the shadows, alert and alive
I don’t need the lie anymore. I know under that beautiful garden there’s violence and decay, things we know, but don’t speak of
Don’t sell me assurances you can’t provide, I’m safe alone
I’m tired of all these people I have to be just to make your world complete
It’s been so long you don’t know which one is me, because you fell, fell into the trap and got ensnared in the one that you could never be for more than a moment
I was hear all along watching you melt under the light of an abstract dream. It was warm for a moment, but only the sun can bring true light, true warmth. The others just illuminated what they wish you to see, what they want you to be
Now your not human, not a person, but a part of something so much bigger than you that you can’t see it’s nothing, you’re nothing. You’ve been put to sleep in someone else’s dream.
Not I. I am wild, but free. I feel the heat of the day and shiver in darkness under the moons glow dreaming of sunrises.
What good is a sunset anyway. The end of a day shouldn’t be honored, it should be remembered. Where did we learn to worship the end of anything, it’s beginnings that have hope. All we have in sunsets are reflections and regrets
So I’ll keep your smile and give you back your watch. I’ll keep the sound of your voice, but give you back your words. You’ll need your hands, so I’ll leave with your touch gently caressing my heart. Everything else belonged to the world anyway.
