The car takes you into the distant horizon
You disappear from my vision into the red sun
Memories of you   They start to come undone
Fantasies of you   They start to come undone

Everything that we once were has now shattered
It splinters into pieces like the unluckiest mirror
So small and so tight the glass could be called sand
Memories   Fantasies   Can't keep from coming undone

Stepping back and taking a look
The picture is worth one thousand words
It's old and faded and straight from a book
Where ink runs into scratched-out parts

Grabbing a glass, zooming in full
The picture is in one thousand pieces
It's old and faded and just like a puzzle
Where parts have been carved and reset

Sage

On this mountain, I can see so far
The landscape is beautiful
And the flowing rivers
On this mountain, I can see so near
The rocky slopes are so full
Of the flowing rivers

In this airplane, I can see so far
The landscape   It disappears
And the waning rivers
From way up here, I can see so near
The destruction from there to here
And the unceasing tears

And I would sage the world if I could,
But my hands alone would not make it any different.

Direction

Watch the cars drive by along the open road
Wonder where they've been; imagine where they'll go
Have a good idea from the wounds they already show

See the planes soar by throughout the open sky
Think of where they've gone; guess to where they'll fly
Judge by the direction toward which the wings do glide

There you go, causing a storm
Drama is your best friend
There you go, their hearts all torn
Forget making amends

No circles for you
Only shapes with ends
Make your enemies from your friends

refisher: (Writing)
Hey there, sir
You're looking worn
Life's been hard
Survived a storm
But now you've created one all on your own

Hey there, sir
You're looking slack
Grew the beard
But quit the pack
Yet now you are in the bottle's tight grasp

River

Reckless river,
Where are you headed to?
Rapids clash o'er
But where are they leading you?

Mighty river,
Why do you swallow so many?
Rapids clash o'er
But what do they make you be?

Clouds

Beautiful clouds
I am with you in the skies
Looking far out
An endless line up high

Look down below
Rivers flow
But we can follow them with our eyes

Once, I watched a tree collapse;
It was on a sunny day in April.
No wind storms or nimbus clouds,
No light breeze   Just the sky at a standstill.

It struck me as ironic.
Something so sturdy could fall at its waist,
And in the wake of its crash,
Debris had scattered and was blown away.

Metaphor

The sky sheds its tears on me
The only light is at the end of the street
Mesmerizing   The small, mounted light
It can be seen from so far in this night

Along the sidewalk, stumbling
Can't see where I am going
Just heading toward that point

Deathbed

refisher: (Writing)
The prospect of ends has always been terrifying for me,
Yet the ultimate end is even more so.   It haunts me.

I am who I am, yet I am told not to fear
The unbecoming of me as the end grows near
But that is what truly frightens the most:
That I do not know when I'll reach the coast.

The black crumbles away
Light has broken through
For the first time in awhile I can breath around You

What had twisted up my heart
Has begun to fade to white
Interestingly enough, because of You I am alright.

Confusion   Never thought my mind could spin so many ways
Frustration   When I notice how much shorter are the days
Until my future begins

In bed   At night   Fully awake
Crying   Eyes out   Mixed up feelings
What the hell do you want from me?
Or is it Hell that you want with me?

A hazy future
The doubt won't melt away but neither will You   Isn't that right?
Never   Never seems so far away
But if it's "never" then it should not seem at all.

Hysteria   Gripping tightly
Others calm   But not me   Thanks a lot

All that was white now turns black and falls away
The clarity in my mind months ago
It fades with the realization the beginning is ending.

Uncertainty rules my every decision
What I thought was right seems dangerous   No   Wrong.

These thoughts in my head seem too crazy for me
I can conclude that they must be from You
Yet, the anti-thesis—What if it is Your enemy?
I cannot prove either is true.

That is why I am going insane.
These ridiculous thoughts of the future slowly rip my sanity away.

Although my literature is open to the public, my life is kept to my friends.

Comment to be considered.
