Borrowed time

Borrowed time

I know I should be grateful

For the borrowed time together

Away from it all

Getting to know you

But when it’s all said and done

It’s just borrowed time

You belong with another

Weighing me 

Weighing me 

Looking across at the table

These people are so dear to me

They nurtured me, feed me, clothed me

They distrust me, starve me, rob me

Take away the good times

Take away the bad times

Does it equal in the palm of my hand

The love I have given them?

The time I have spent on them?

Perhaps this feeling will change

Perhaps my thoughts have lead me away

But looking across the table

Into their eyes I count the minutes

Till I leave them behind

Till they are miles away

Till this are a phone call away

Do I need their worry weighting me down?

Their voices ringing internally on repeat

Is that what becomes of relationships?

Is there a time when nothing of value 

No longer builds between us

Is there nothing left but the memories

No longer created between us

Till our lives come to an end

Till our lives come to an end

Screaming 

Screaming 

It feels good

To do all you can

To do all you must

No one can say

I didn’t care

No one can say

I didn’t try

There is a peace in knowing

All the screaming in the world

Will not change the facts

Will not change your mind

It feels good

To let it all go

To let it all go

Knowing there was nothing more I can do

Knowing I couldn’t change the ending to your story

When you refuse to do 

What you need to do

It feels good

It feels good

When I say goodbye

Each word ends without regret

Inhabit

Inhabit

This flesh contains me

The me bursting within

I inhabit a space 

Not of my making

Limbs and bones

Grown together by plan

I’ve made it my own

Incomparable to others

Think of it as my will

Running freely across time 

Centred within a universe

Which could crumble at anytime

Which breaks, builds, and burns

All at once, for however long, for ever 

Blood rushing through

Blood rushing through

Believe me

This was always the plan

To dwell in this place

Gather my thoughts

Gain and lose so many people 

For this beautiful moment

Believe me

It has all been worth it

The confusion echoed in everyone’s eyes

The reflections of disbelief staring into void

Every piece of me knows it now

For this beautiful moment

Where everything is still

Not a word is spoken

Everything is at peace

Every part of me is at peace
