ReflectionI want to sprinkle a piece of meReflection by xxdraxx
Into bit-code hoping it sticks.
But no one cares about the truth
Unless it's funny.
And I've lost sight
Of what that is;
I've been taught that it's all relative.
We're all irrelevant in the end
And so, the fire that use to burn in my heart
Is all Charcoal. And I've been trying
To see with no eyes; to drive with
But now I know I want to melt
Together people's 90 degree angles,
Until the world knows everyone's rights.
I want to melt together the distance
That separates prose and poetry;
Fact and Fiction; light and darkness.
FireI never prayed,Fire by xxdraxx
that was Grandma's thing.
I never knew God,
My pops was the same.
The cross around his neck
Is catching dust and forgotten dreams.
Our campfire had a sweet scent to it,
A certain comfort that you couldn't explain.
I threw our photographs into it.
I let them hug each other and burn away like phoenixes.
I'm too damn afraid
Of our boat flipping again,
And gazing down to the heavens.
I could hide your reflection
Behind magic cloaks
But our face is the same.
It burns me,
But there's a certain beauty
In rising from the ashes.
HarmonyLet's all danceHarmony by xxdraxx
Over the beat
Of gun shots,
Let them ring
Out. And become
These gargled screams,
let us accept
But never forget.
These vicious words
And quietly sit still
For those who can't be heard.
