into the woods

We were making wishes in poisoned waters.
We’re chasing the things inside of our heads,
while missing everything in front of us.

With blackened hearts,
we’re always looking for more.

We gave in;
it’s all just an illusion.

between her own angels and demons.

We're just living examples of the light and the dark, what's in your heart speaks through you -- even without words.

We're all just poetry in motion....

We're all much more simple and beautiful than we let others believe -- or even our very selves.

Dance in the emptiness and expose yourself, down to your very core.

You're just living poetry, carrying on in silent moments.

hello operator:

Somewhere between North Jersey and Philadelphia. 

You told me that lately all
these days and nights have been so beautiful,
but you feel like you're a mental breakdown that's long overdue.
So, you're out here  spending late nights chasing the lights,
trying to outrun the things in your head.

It made me think of all the things that I've been chasing and wondering the worth of it and how I always feel the same way, because when everything feels too good - there's always another punch to take and I guess we just get use to all of the waiting.

While we're in the moment, we'll keep chasing and chasing as we keep hoping the night doesn't catch back up to us. And, I guess we'll be okay if we don't keep waiting around.

train station thoughts

Somewhere in New Jersey.

I miss the smell of the city,
like I miss the sound of your voice,
like I miss those long cold nights in,
like I miss the warm days of summer,
like I miss sunsets on the roof,
like how much you can miss something, but begin to feel okay again.

The sky broke out into a million different colors and I saw everything so clearly.
It was in everything.
It was you, it was me.
Clarity came in a moment without thought.

I haven't felt so connected as I have in a long time; I won't give it a name, but I'm seeing so much more while I've been looking a whole lot less.

like a bad habit, your life will fall and keep falling; until you fight back.

Sometimes....

Wonderland isn't so wonderful.

Reality will begin to haunt you and your illusions will begin to suffocate you.

Break free.
Break free from your illusions.
Break free.
See through it all and come back.
 

Break free.
