it didnt take long for me to realize the swing was broken...

by dilutedjoy

slip one last time
that connection has no friction
remember the seconds that lost meaning?
they havent forgotten us
as a matter of fact
each one only lasts a n instant

so its become fragile
this place of ours
walking by our first fall just makes the next step harder then looking
( if i could have seen the canyons bottom
maybe it wouldnt be so bad)

i write letters and definition is losing clarity
sometimes i just put my hands up to my face
and pretend that being blind will give me answers
ignoring the one that soothes confusion
the futures probably useful
caught between safetys abscent recognition
that doesnt like to mingle minutes with permanent goodbyes
its theyre fatigue we place on clouds
another break before stories sleep awkward
giving in affectionately because the audience
prefers eulogys by
the sun
desperate behind closed doors
dissipate without dissapointment
then let your identity stare you in the eye
chances are imitations dress formally
for your approval
so it could always come back to patience
those shark infested waters you spend so much
time in

Why did my rate not go through? In short, I wrote that this write was magnificent and I could quote nearly every line. Absolutely fabulous? Never read one this fantastic!
