Held up in the midst of a lazy day
I can wander for miles
And I can do it sitting in place
Everything that has occurred
Every little incident
It has become soaked in everything else
The dripping wet walls of grand halls
They weren’t really built for kings and queens
They were built for overzealous souls confusing wants and needs

Wars waged pushing lives out of their rightful place
Religion, greed, revenge, and genocide
Hate can spread faster than a wildfire
And just the heat of the flames can destroy a life
As minds crumble and loose their will
The influence of others can save a soul
The influence of others can swallow one whole

Lives that have vanished without a trace
This may imply that everything they ever said, did, and dreamed
That it was all just a waste
But something must be left behind
Even a fragment of a thought
I swear it finds a way to leave even the most closed off mind

Minds can conjure up dreams through schematics and carefully crafted syntax
As the world is changed through a game played over the drawing board
Science brought so artfully to life
I’ve seen people lost in their phones
Hell, I’ve sat at my computer connected to the world
Feeling so disconnected I forget to check in
Loneliness can be a disease and the remedy has been lost in the wires
Diluted over generations

Decades pass and I loose track of who I used to be
I’ve experienced so much
But sometimes I feel like none of it happened
Memories can drift into the distance
And I look at them with doubt
Resisting the urge to let the scene envelope my senses
It’s everything and then some more
I have been around and my sense of wonder
It’s starting to loose it's cleansing force

With the aid of the television’s glowI laid waste to the dayStaring at the screen I watched the walls turn greyEverything so silentThe wind stuck outsideI felt the world rewind itselfEverything began appear as a reason to uncover rather than a reasoning selfI under curtains of covers wanted to see for myself

So I stepped outside without opening a door

I walked in raptureLooking past the stain-covered carpet covering my bedroom floorThoughts of everything that lay aheadAppearing like a road dissolving under the grace of the sunAs it...

Twenty-six and I still carry angst that ranks with my teenage yearsI remember thinking then about where I’d be nowThings looked differentLike I never imagined myself still living in my mother’s houseAnd I never thought I’d continue to be plagued by anxietyStumbling words and pacing curbsWaiting for someone to hit a switchHopelessly hoping for a moment that doesn’t existAm I such a fool?Maybe notMaybe I need to untie my heartstrings outta this knotIt’ll take patienceAnd mental muscles I’ve long ignoredSo I gotta fire up this dust...

Best of luck to the love no one wantsMeant to express the best intentionsIt’s easy to make a bad impressionThat’s why they call it a crush

Best of luck to the down and outs

Already hit bottom and watching pavement pastIt’s easy to weigh yourself downBesides gravity there’s a million other forcesAll rushing towards usDoing their best to persuade our broken bodiesTo blend in with the beaten ground

Best of luck to the mourning souls desperately trying

To hold onLost in the shock and found in the painIt’s almost impossible to break awayAfter...

Music needs meI mean I need musicThe words can hurtGod how they stingI need to feel the feel-good pain

Headphones on under an open sky

Everything is calm except for a passionate pleaHearing someone scream about the finer points of lifeAs the instruments rage with fingers engagedI wonder if I’m the only one Who has ever felt they needed to be saved

Voices low and deep

Ready to fade and leapI can visualize what they’re saying in memoriesWhich funny enough they were essential in creatingFriends and loversParents, siblings, and cousinsWe...
