If only i knew where I am,

I could say where I’ve been.

I’m backward moving forward,

In between winds.

 

If life has taught me anything,

It is everything.

If all the things my eyes have seen,

All disarranged, worth less than a dream.

Your shady ways cloud today

Still, we met to watch screens set bright.

Replaced a good book, a cold beer on the toilet.

You are saving your truth, giving up trouble.

Nothing worthwhile was ever so cheap

Let it out before I lose speed,

can’t remember the last time I forgot to eat.

 

I’m sick of making plans to decay comfortably.

My house is without a front door

I am only as deep as my sleep.

I give up my; self messy yet clean

Nothing worthwhile was ever so freeing.

 

Undressed words all go running

Like music or smoke as easy to replace.

Uneven I appear, when at the right angle

But why look at the piece when I stand with the puzzle?

 

Whole I stand within truth grounds.

Strength is to weakness as I am to my habits.

I have no weapon, no enemy and no fate:

no opinion will need to take mine.

 

Save them trouble I give up my truth.

Nothing worthwhile was ever so cheap

Let it out before I lose speed,

can’t remember the last time I forgot to eat.
