Stars

“Do you remember the stars?

They crashed down the other day

Yeah – fell into reality

We realised there’s no point in them

They’re so far away

So they fell down into the sea

There’s a couple at the bottom of the Tasman”

 

“I suppose that’s why people can’t be assed to go and get ‘em” I said

“They’re so far away.”

Relapse

Today’s a fresh fruit, Monday skydiving

Again, stop.

Relax

Have a good time

The cycle never sleeps
The sixth time that you took from the jar

Pay the pennies in
But bills will come and flip – hard

The same stories
Try to view this from a distance

It’s good riddance

Same religion inflicted by this sick rhythm that riffs on memories and rips them
Onto the eyes of beholder
Can’t see it, more like lens less like blinds that can roll up that
Stay throughout the day
See a memorable face
Turned to a bad way
Back to the bad place
Where stand waits
And sand slates feel so good to the palm –
like water on napalm
Just stay calm its never to late to stop harm
Eyes inflated like tubes, a hate farm

Stuck in the head again

Gonna go back to bed again

Reconcile with the red again
It’s the third time this week

Stare at the bed sheets

….

I Couldn’t Slow Down

I’m just the wind

The hills and trees stay put

I’m blown through them

Like the unspoken word; I’m the potential,

What might have happened

Had the stars been aligned,

Had the moon been positioned right

Against the waters

 

I’m a bad dream

What could happen

Like the simmering pot, keep the lid on

The light shines through, but it’s looking pretty grey outside

 

I serve you, not me but you

This guy over here

The one with the straight spine

The smiling one

 

Heart in hand I’m bending over backwards

So I hit the wall too fast

I guess one might say I skipped a beat

I couldn’t slow down

 

Looking now, I position the truth

Don’t try to touch, you’ll hit the floor – hard

It’s all about boundaries you see

Couldn’t be you without me
