Eventually

EVENTUALLY

Heartbreak is a hotel down these narrow roads

with stony walls and cheap linen

I sit still and collect my thoughts like fine wine

Observing the clouds; they are heavy with sadness

waiting to explode any minute now

It’s almost comical how quick things change;

sporadically, thoughts unplug

I never liked change; holding on to an imaginary ideal like a lifeline

Willing constancy to hold sway like that will change anything

Nothng is really given; only taken by those

who possess the ability to take

So we hold out our hands like fishermen’s net

waiting for the sieve to break

Stuck in a myriad of unfathomable events;

trying to influence things that cannot be influenced

We lost the ability to look inwards a millenia ago;

right aroud the time we lost true sight

Now the worlds within us are shriveled and decaying

in need of noursihment we can’t supply

Life is failing us or are we failing life

It matters not in the end; our opinions rarely do

holding our heads above water

counterbalancing our weaknesses

In time we will see; when the bandages finally give way

We will breathe the crisp clean air;

the one that settles in after a rainy day

  1. This is deep. Spoke directly to me, but I feel we should still try to look inwards whatever the case and not carry on just as we please knowing that, “Eventually” after the rain come sun.
