Benzai-Ten
2CBurt

Our choices
 1
hold us fast and tight to all
 2
this great communication,
 3
her choices open, overall.
 4
 
 
The blanks, the call
 5
we wait for
 6
leading you through as we tread
 7
paths where the forgotten grows
 8
and stirring hers, treading those
 9
she changes, your mind as she
 10
makes choices open overall
 11
of all our dreams before they fall,
 12
over spilt tears, the buying
 13
once, what you will be, the crying
 14
path through clouds, or what you were,
 15
if you think you can see her.
 16
 
 
If you
 17
drop to the shallow-end, she'll
 18
age with your places and friends;
 19
if you know that, you're lying.
 20
 
 
So she changes her face,
 21
as you hold fast and tight to
 22
all this great communication.
 23
 
 
If you know that you're lying,
 24
you'd expect these to pall, you
 25
know that, and you know what to do -
 26
 
 
.
 27
 
 
or rise to the top.
 28
 
 
All this great
 29
communication, now,
 30
and she changes to face it.
