diagnosis: pending
unknown

on the day. on the day on the day it all began
 1
and your eyes and your eyes in your eyes i swam
 2
it’s so far. it’s so long. it’s so far. it’s been too long.
 3
and i’m here. and i can’t hear. and it feels like it’s gone
 4
you said. you said. you said and i listened
 5
weave a web of lies, in the moment in the moment: glisten
 6
capture. capture capture and cage.
 7
some kind of some kind of somekind of intense rage
 8
onliness. onliness. onliness. is next to holiness.
 9
which is godlessness. which they said was atrocious
 10
and i wake and i wake and i wake alone
 11
and i sleep and sleep and sleep since yer gone
 12
and my home is my heart and my heart is my home
 13
and you on the road means me alone
 14
and alone is fine. alone is fine alone is fine alone is fine
 15
just save a moment in time in time in time in good time
 16
and in my memories i was yers and you weren’t mine
 17
alone. alone alone alone alone alone.
 18
alone is my home and you are in my heart
 19
if you aren’t here, then we’ll be apart
 20
and apart is fine b/c alone is my home
 21
and you are where and i am here
 22
and you there, which isn’t near
 23
and we talked of us in terms of two
 24
but you aren’t here and this isn’t new.
 25
small it is, small it will be
 26
you be you and i’m most certainly me.
 27
together, apart. together . apart. to get her
 28
is to be there. so do.
 29
