The Abyss

Standard

If I run fast enough
My tears won’t fall
If I fall deep enough
My eyes won’t tear

The Cynic

Standard

Miles across the crust
Lands, seas and mountains
Trees, flowers and birds
The world, the Earth, the universe
So enormous
There’s no room for me
So immense
I have nowhere to be

The Mess

Standard

Do you understand why sometimes I don’t understand why you treat me this way
Do you understand why sometimes I just wanna hold you but also hide
From your loving eyes

The Passing Rain

Standard

Those teeth, veins, roars
That kind of burning glare
I know them all
I know them all
This shaking, chattering
This type of inaudible begging
What else can I do
What more can I ask for

The Casa

Standard

Finding home
I’m finding a home
Without odour
Without nuisance
Finding somewhere
To be my home
A few pairs of worn shoes
A whole backpack of melancholy
I hug myself
So cold, so warm
I dry my tears
Helpless then back to fearless
Finding home
Searching the world
Somewhere I’m cherished
Somewhere I’m the priority
Finding a place
To be my home
Volumes of heart-to-heart journals
An overwhelming number of snapshots
I searched the world
For years on my own
I’m my home
So I thought
