Serendipity

Innocence.
Let it break my heart.
I'm gone with the wind.

Forever.

Cruelty,
that their faceless beings
harbor deep within.
I'm sick of all the selfishness.

Whatever.

When the lights go low.
I feel my skin sink slow.
I hear the music fade.
Watch them be replaced,
with thoughts of you.
And I

Surrender.

Hear the bells,
down the hill,
watch them call to us.
The strong,
who think they're weak,
Which only makes them

Stronger.

Watch the skies,
turn to black
As the lights come on.
Artificial lights,
Like the artificial happiness
in our minds,
will never take the pain away.
And we wait,
for another day.
So we can once again be

Better.

So I follow the sound of the music,
Expecting happiness among them playing it.
And I walk down the hills to find,
They're as broken as the rest of us.
I run up the hill again
to where I began my search,
and see,
Even though nothing's changed,

Serendipity.

Loving in a cube.

People change,
Times change,
Life changes,
And love,
It changes too.

Love goes and comes around in circles,
It's like we're loving in a sphere.
Rolling around in it's infinity.
But life's uniform, like a square.
And we're living in a cube.
So whose to say the sphere wont fit into that cube?
and that we're loving in a cube.

What's love got to do with anything in our lives?
What's friendship got to do with ourselves?
Because at the end of the day,
that's what we all are,
selfish.
Every decision we make is so we can protect ourselves, feel good about ourselves, and secure that ego.
So we'll love.
So we can feel good.
And we'll make a name for ourselves through friendship,
so other people can be as obsessed with us as we are of ourselves.

What's a feeling?
What's a commitment?
What's lust?
What's respect and cherishing.
Because passion is like a circle,
but honor and trust,
it's a square.
And Love,
Love's just a word with no meaning.

So why not 'love' all you can
Till your heart is left aching?
Why not laugh, in the moment,
till you're breathless?
Why not just live free,
with or without
that 'one'?
Because he's not coming.
Not now,
Not ever.
Because he doesn't exist.
Who needs love to be happy,
when love is just a word,
but happiness,
is a feeling.
