seeking hades again though some dream leap i find myself watching cars people villages trees life aid juries love and somewhere below a bell cord is being pulled and shadows are gathering before a pit where i should be seeking answers.
it aches grease the journey begins when you leave stormy waters and give up hold of the shore “i have no longing to be trapped under clouds in storm” still divided waiting for something to clutch as the helm goes wild and lightning flashes on peaks turned white in trusting the drift one must be prepared for destruction at sea.
heart’s lake to be distracted through so many days the hour as if not even alive “stories of innocence violated pile up” and cause the ultimate questions our survival relies on such situations i would rename these deeds to make them disappear but i cannot force myself to turn eyes from flame even though i go blind.
law we watch the wind tear us to shreds nowhere does a man listen in compromise they fired the shots at me the legality of it is humorous in replacing the tide they knew where to find you.
