I have lived the life
Of the shallow breath
Afraid to draw living,
Sure such inhalation
My great vacancy
Reveal my heart
My Collapsar Dreams
That swells my Gravity
Has swallowed me
And so has swallowed itself
I see myself as I see myself
One outside the Event
The other inside the Horizon
This is how I have lived
Standing on the edge of forever
Falling over the edge of forever
I have called this Balance
The Golden Machine of my Child-Self
This flimsy teeter-totter of my Now-Self
The Fulcrum Everlasting
My Fear (my heart, my pain, my everything)
I sat Midnight on Midnight
Waiting at Crossroads in the Desert
In the Mountains
In city after city
Only to return the way I came
Sure what I was selling
Even Satan would reject
I saw myself abandoned
So I abandoned
The only thing left
The Last Abandonment
Was that of myself
So opened the third set of eyes
On my Edge-of-Forever
My Could Be-Self
I can feel the next walk
It builds in me
What was Emptiness
I am learning is Hunger
Clinging to The Past
While flailing about wildly in the Abyss
Isn't Balance, it's Paralysis
And when next I camp at the Crossroads
All I'll have for sale is my Truth
And the faith that the only way
I'll ever return to where I came
Is by walking straight ahead
Until I reach it Somewhere Forward
Somewhere Forward at the other side
