A Million Miles

You know that day never arrives
There are always a million miles
The sunset I sink into
Is always pacing through
The walls the absorb every word
Don’t even know what they heard
Where are then the happy isles
In a galaxy of manic rhymes
Because there is a deadline
To I’ll be just fine
Truth that would not show
A world that does not know
Wishes that don’t come true
The souls I peak into
Whatever way I seek
Love alone is beyond weak
Laws that are not to breach
A place you cannot reach
The bland infinity where I am caught
The eternal struggle which comes to naught

Remember that there are people who don’t mind when you lie to them.

They don’t mind when you tell them stories.

So long as you tell a good one.

For they have heard many.

They need you to make them believe.

Believe the things that they don’t see.

If you lie to them

You’ll have to believe

That these are the things you can’t feel

You’re humming lies to yourself now

And you don’t see

That these are the people that never believe.

They know every story that has ever been

And for all of our lies

There are hells of equal rim.

Unless the walls shatter themselves in a collision to break free

Until the stars fall to pebbles to match the dust, you’ll see

At the bottoms of misery’s ocean

Is a soul manic to its core

Pride that lingers the wreck

Doesn’t bring it back life

I’m not scared of the starts that wreck you just a little bit enough.

I do not fear the benign stops that leave you gasping in puddles of truth.

I do not fear nothing that has ever been.

But the steady glide.

The straight line.

That feels like nothing

That becomes from nothing

And will come to nothing at all.

I fear just how long that line is.

I fall like an empire at its peak. And you like a feather

Flying fatefully down to rock bottom

Every cell that trembles in regret

Trust me, every single one will forget

At the end of a heartfelt cry, every regret is still the right decision

On the edge of every loose sword is a heart still figuring it out.

But you never had it in you.

Remember the days when the waves could less than tug the cliffs at their feet.

And the nights when the turmoil of the tide couldn’t tear but a pebble in its might
