reward system

when I tear myself through the window

did I catch a piece of your sanity?

pacing up and down this maze

I lock down my heart

To wait for the day

when you can clean the darkest frustration

scrubbing the bruises from my veins

like a batting cage they take their turn

I can see colors burning through the distance

breath in and out

they inhale every secret left inside my mind

a million words are exhaled

but I can’t translate a blind man’s burden

run through this glass covered maze

skin broken to bone

men watch in uniform

they shake the locks with cruelty

shut my eyes with polaroids under every scar

flash every emotion away

their hands shake at they keys

will they unlock the doors?


break apart the trains carrying this heavy burden

paint a million pictures in the wind

can’t transpire what you mean to me

every day after the chariots arrive

I can see your smile from this time awake

a bursting light through this vision

capture the brightest memory

everyday growing deeper inside

write a million words into the sand

these visions cling to me

when darkness falls in my eyes

you open up the gates of oblivion

when their words tear me apart

I remember your face

every chemical reaction

every color filtered across the sky

waiting for the day

when you arrive

light the match heads and let them spin through time

every spark of emotion

every smoke screen

every flame

growing higher and higher

when the walls crumble with cathartic exaltation

when you translate the words inside my head

an infinity of locked doors

a million keys in their hands

a shuffle and final breakdown

but you only have the key

you only have the key

you are my wishing well

you are the trust growing stronger

the truth with everlasting definition

break apart the trains carrying this heavy burden

watch them crumble into disbelief
