i've never been good at letting things go
i am stretched always between
but now, i see only questions at
slowly out of this bad yin pose
Isle: "Herbert, where did that gash on your faceplate come from?"
Herbert: "This damage occurred on the battlefield. An enemy gave it to me, many decades ago."
Isle: "What is a battlefield?"
Herbert: "An area where war takes place."
Isle: "What is war?"
Herbert: "When two large opposing groups fight"
Isle: "Why do they fight?"
Herbert: "... You ask many questions, Isle."
Isle: "You have seen many things, Herbert."
Herbert: "And yet...I have learned most from you."
Flying well below the whole world's radar
Unlikely to pop up on anybody's mind
But the heart, it feels haunted by a sabre
A whole country's worth of sin, sharpened,
And destined to bring about my end.
A treecreeper hidden behind the ivy,
I am praying this ill feeling just blows away.
Time stood there waiting,
The look on your face,
Your cheeks are stained
Fingers caressing a cigarette,
You are burden by the weightlessness
~~ i went back to this prompt, i think it missed this one.
