Falling for the worst,
Standing with his stolen purse.
The time & the date, both at quarter-to-eight.
Drifting out of line
With fashions pushing for better times.
Heard the brush of the sands they were beaten by hands.
Open all the doors,
Smash the windows and strip the halls.
Push the cobwebs away – let the spiders stay.
Such an overwhelming first,
Shredded shackles; broken curse.
Watch the tips of the trees as they curl in the breeze.
Move out to the coast,
Give up lying and make the most.
Let the cool water flow as we passively grow.
An ordinary world just might take a second whirl
Push the boat on the lake
Watch me tremble and shake.
