Beginning grasp a mask away revealing an ugly face reality rip time away consume binge and blow pointlessness the stress duress prevents me from achieving height focus found yet lost still notice what questions I have for life. I can laugh now but it is lacking the meaning from the lack of my heart beating slower while holding my own breath slower So I can catch fire from your infectious laugh. I can't even touch myself you are the last one that held me so intimately how does one replace that feeling. Hope endlessly persevere Hold hope create life. Hope endlessly persevere Stay vigilant and love what you find. Hope. I can laugh now but it is lacking the meaning from the lack of my heart beating slower while holding my own breath slower. So I can catch fire from your infectious laugh. Hope endlessly persevere Hold hope create life. Stay vigilant and love what you find. Hope

Hollow be the mind of thee a poisoned land they've broken tending the landscape or fiending the furnace. Hate's not a sport you've blackened the earth left in the care of an absentee landlord. (Burned my heart left all alone) Perhaps my vulnerability in this time of reflecting is metaphorical of the brackets holding back the glory of jewelry Lucid is lackluster caught in the crossfire dodging reality shaking and shivering Tattooed your face on my chest but I still can't taste your breath. How can I fall asleep everytime before you even blink yet wake with your eyes staring right through me Hollow be the mind of thee a poisoned land they've broken tending the landscape or fiending the furnace.

I thought i had done everything was there something I was missing. Flooding my mind. Always. At every juncture. Constantly embracing your beauty but most importantly I focused on keeping you happy. What was I missing. Legitimately refusing to breathe bask in the glory of relief. The aftermath worse than any car crash and I stumble back with a grin as I laugh at the lack of color in your eyes and a lack of color and life left in mine. Forever has no chance disguising the passion. Fire in my stare can not be tamed. I still view you all the same. Always making memories photogenic beauty but now you never leave the frame. The flames flicker and light my face like the heat I rise but I can't escape. I swear to burn too just stay near. The atmosphere is a lovely grave. I never thought that you would hold me closer. Now in death keep watching over. But if for you the concept is hard for grasping. Then you are strong and meant to be out saving. Legitimately refusing to breathe continue to bask in the glory of relief. The aftermath worse than any car crash and I stumble back with a grin as I laugh at the lack of color in your eyes and a lack of color and life left in mine.

Exhaustion seeps and I hope sleep brings relief but who am I kidding. The body the machine needing a break to keep from breaking. It is not a deliberate cry it is just so hard to smile when I can feel you everywhere but can no longer physically embrace the perfect state of being I am when our hearts are beating in such synchronicity. I feel our consciousness Like a grandmaster Entity Don't believe in a Gods Plan but what the hell am I meant to be? Hope I'm not permanently Shackled in the void of uncertainty Goddamn, it's shredding me, Infesting relentlessly this must be Hell. Never had I considered my self blind or even sight deficient. Everything behind my lids was always just black and white images. In the distance I catch subtle glimpses and flashes of blue and green sending my mind spiraling. It seems so trivial why sleep rip out my pineal refusing to walk in a faux existence that allows me to hold you but only for moments. I feel our consciousness Like a grandmaster Entity Don't believe in a Gods Plan but what the hell am I meant to be? Hope I'm not permanently Shackled in the void of uncertainty Goddamn, it's shredding me, Infesting relentlessly this must be Hell Blue and green Ceasing to dream is ceasing to see. I am finally doe eyed taking in the rainbow behind these eyelids your colors forever show.

Driftwood 04:48
I want to choke the life from you till your first breath of new life is nothing but my essence. Look into your soul through your fluttering eyelids. Use only my abrasive passion to let you know when I take your breath away let it be from a shock that skips your heart not a heart that is skipped over and left in shock. Energy can neither be created so it passed through your conductive flow. (Sever a limb and the tree will still prosper. As we craft our purpose for everything merging beneath the cell made surface that we have created. Imperfection is natures solution) Adding jolts of electricity turning some history into negative rejecting magnetism that couldn't attract the positive side of driftwood until it was realized it had none. Just a piece of the world fallen from it's origin. Look into your soul through your fluttering eyelids. Use only my abrasive passion to let you know when I take your breath away let it be from a shock that skips your heart not a heart that is skipped over and left in shock. Energy can neither be created so it passed through your conductive flow. (Sever a limb and the tree will still prosper. As we craft our purpose for everything merging beneath the cell made surface that we have created. Imperfection is natures solution) I want to choke the life from you. Look into your soul through your fluttering eyelids. Use only my abrasive passion to let you know when I take your breath away let it be from a shock that skips your heart not a heart skipped over and left in shock searching for a shore to settle. A shore to call home. (Just a piece of the world fallen from it's origin searching for a shore to settle. A shore to call home)
