|Accompany Me in the Silence|
grab the hand that is outstretched
from rays of sun
raise your voice and rant
at this series of thoughts made of red clay.
bake with me an imagination cake in chaotic rooms
start with a sugar based batter as you step forth and cheer
licking the chocolate covered wooden spoon
that will one day be served as silverware for our last meal.
ask the world why they cry
bend over backwards trying to find a whisper among the screams
the surrender of our souls when we pound the floors wanting to fly
away to somewhere beyond a rainbow in our dreams.
walk with me over the roaring rivers
our sneakers touching the dry water
sewing buttons to attach our souls to our shirts like name tags as we shiver
those tiny metal monopoly dogs collected in the dust to barter.
accompany me in the silence
stare off into the dooming darkness our minds ever reeling
faint voices in the distance ask us if we are happy and hence
laughter bursts out inside of us as we start counting cracks in the ceiling
lie in the grass and stare at the sky
thinking about nothing yet receiving resistance
looking for patterns in all of these lies
reasons to listen to the thunder in the distance.
a better life instead of all this silence
Marked by the concrete tears that fall from the heavens yet are just beyond your reach
The suffocating air full of understanding tells you all you have to do is have reliance
upon a friend as you walk towards the setting sun on a dying beach
