Back in the days when we parted ways When the scars of lonliness were set ablaze The pain we held was screaming A poor excuse for daydreaming. You were strong To ignore the sound And I was weak To sing along.
Now the peak is yours And all I have is the bottom, The awful wild And the forever autumn.
And so I locked the door Killed the lights And smoked my room with incense. I sat on the solitary chair Plugged in the earphones And played Carley Rae Jepsen. I closed my eyes And asked the boundless darkness, “Why, to forgive Is difficult?” And it replied, “Because you are never harmed.”
I questioned myself. And I answered myself, “I am a soul Untouched by joy Or misery. It is my body that Sherlocks me!”
And then I was lost Between my own eyes Distilling boundless wisdom.
