One angle from the basket



Lies, lies, lies

The only place to feel safe

Where words and worlds

Can be just as you wish them

For some moments


I would say not to blink

Or breath loud enough or it will break

Right in the arms of reality, awake

Good things never last

And nothing good is ever good enough to keep


We're all too small to see

Even with all the years and inch

We die stuck in where we begun

Living to give up the things we want

Pleasing to convince others of who we are


Lies, lies, lies

The salvation we have moulded

The only escape from the testing eyes

A satisfaction to the demanding ears

A world you can create for just you


Alone is the only way we can

Alone is the way we ought to live

Lies help break us free

A wall, a fence away from the pinch

For sometime.

Light and beautiful is all they see
But that is not all there is to it
If only they could look close enough......

The agony of losing you
Is like a broken china unfettered hopes
That sparked neons to my buds.

Slowly you begin to sprang
Like a woman yielding to her man
Your beauty is a bang!

Oh I love this life
Sorrowful harsh heartbreaking laziness all sort of
All and love it gives.
