Permanent Reminder

have you ever broken stride?
it seems you felt it all
but with each new breath
you know you were wrong

how can you know love?
if all you’ve tried is lust,
comfort, and misguided trust
then you hit a wall
no surprise at all

I don’t wanna be around
when you find her
I don’t wanna bring you down from your cloud
I don’t need a permanent
reminder
of all the good things I’m not allowed

well, I, I’ve seen the painful death
I’ve witnessed, and been there too
I know how hard it is to see
the same thing when it’s happening to you

but if there’s some doubt, like you say
if love is even there
well if you’re not even sure,
then what you doing with her?
I really think you should prepare

and when honesty is key
and you’re more honest with me…..

I don’t wanna be around
when you find her
I don’t wanna bring you down from your cloud
I don’t need a permanent
reminder
of all the good things I’m not allowed

I don’t wanna be around
when you find her
I don’t wanna be the foolish clown
I don’t need a permanent
reminder
of how I’d never let you down
you know I’d never let you down

Long Jump

how did I fall to this?
his spectrum wild and crazed
fortunate son of passion
living each breath fully
it invited me
like a warm bath
or triangle sheets
begging me to enter
and see just how lovely,
how comfort can be

underneath something was ill
someone broken, something still
intentions run aground on
the wrong shore, turn around

red ground company
and he silenced me with fear
but the slant of disease
gave it light, and now
I cannot be afraid
since between the sheets
slivered like a coward
I saw the hideous head of dishonour

underneath something was ill
someone broken, something still
intentions run aground
you’re on the wrong shore, turn around
