Do you like the chase more than the catch?

I want future, you want past,

You get bored when you think,

You possess that which you seek,

But I’m assured that with time,

You’d find you’ll never fully possess that which is my mind,

Maybe I think too much but I think you only bore of yourself,

To be clear, I’m inviting you on an adventure, I don’t want anybody else.

Black Dirt

Black dirt,

Will it make it worse?

Make it hurt?

Black dirt,

Will it make it work?

Feel it in your bones

Holy uncontrolled,

Feel it in your soul.

 

Scatter me into the wind,

I thought I would always call you a friend

But now I’m staring down labyrinths, lost again,

I remember the way your eyes,

Used to look into mine,

Long before I drank the poisoned wine,

I tried and I tried to just be fine,

But my heart was shards of what it was,

Covered in invisible cuts,

Wanting so badly to go in reverse but the course is ran,

Please forgive me I can hardly stand,

I’m sinking in the:

 

Black dirt,

Will it make it worse?

Make it hurt?

Black dirt,

Will it make it work?

Feel it in your bones

Holy uncontrolled,

Feel it in your soul.

 

Scatter me once again,

I could no longer pretend

That your shadow didn’t offend,

I remember the way we were innocent,

Before the river ran dry,

Long before I drank the poisoned wine,

I tried and I tried to just be fine,

But burning anger consumed my love,

Covering you in invisible cuts,

I want so badly to take it back,

Truth is, I don’t know who I am,

I’m sinking in the:

 

Black dirt,

Will it make it worse?

Make it hurt?

Black dirt,

Will it make it work?

Feel it in your bones

Holy uncontrolled,

Feel it in your soul.

It was never about us, not really, but we think it is, when we’re young.

In the afterglow of our youth, as the sun sets, we see how it was about all of us.

We were all seeking our slivers of light, our embers of passion and truth.

Like stardust, we fill our pockets with memories and hopes of better tomorrows.

It will not ever be as wonderful or horrible as we can imagine, it will simply be and we will simply be there to meet it and look into it’s blinking eyes, reflections of our own gaze, a soul’s hall of mirrors, casting the most beautiful reflections we will ever see.

There is no regret, there is nothing but a song that lingers on, long after we have sung our last note.

It has been sung through all time, it will be sung through all time.

Listen and you will hear the melody.

Listen.

We meet again in a crowded staircase,

This is the place,

Where I meet your blazing chilled stare with a smile,

I walk the labyrinth between us that spans light years of miles,

I have seen it before, slowly, the bricks will crash,

The walls, figments and flash,

I will be victorious

and

You will be in my past.

The sun will shine again,

A new beginning in every end,

Cut the rope, reverent hushed,

Nothing worth having can ever be rushed,

Muddy footprints mark the path,

Intrinsically present, future and past,

Are your tables stable? Do your bridges burn?

Are the horses heroes and from where do you return?

Is the sun heavy, its beams an amulet in your throat?

Do you cut like a dagger weaving it’s way through silver smoke?

As you take an autumn inhalation of iridescent stars,

Crackling navy scarlet moonlit bonfires and guitars,

Trust in the timing of evolution,

May you bravely step to the left and enjoy the revolution.

Enduring every monitored minute,

Screens flicker, keys frantically tapped as a cloud of voices competes for the attention and energy you lack,

Strained and drained,

Dehumanizing productivity,

Trumping basic human decency,

Will you be a cog? Will you settle for security?

What price is your life worth? Will you sell it for pennies?
