Unsustainable thoughts I forgot

This is an attempt to go further than thought can contain
Something like when prince got off on purple rain

We wander these unleveled streets
Without long barreled heat
Seeking pain to meet
But taste not defeat

My stride floats without feet
Not a crawl but a creep

The second coming of Langston Hughes
Miles Davis couldnt blow these blues
Constructing unbreakable foundations using words as tools
Life in the fourth quarter and breaking all the rules

Fear not the atmospere but what lurks beyond
Resemblance of a childhood thats to far gone
Some hearts cry out when others yawn
We built this city but wont stand upon.
