There is a time for everything
But time for me has drawn its wings back away
Leaving me to the sad hellos of today
Do I wish to embellish in the sounds of your pain?
Or will I take the back way into town to seek the reigns?
Tension like ice crackles at the sound of departure
Sometimes leaving it alone is harder
I never expressed the selfish growths of my pride
I am sickened in darkness, stuck in this mind
Where is the heart when one needs the goodbye?
Where is the mind when I break down and cry?
I never amounted to much
Though I was granted everything
My wings are folded too tightly with time
The meat is tucked beneath and only I feed
On the breadth of my own luscious nourishment
Will I crush you with indifference?
Silently beat you with fervent fury?
Will I flood with tears of inward emotion?
The sick selfishness one masks as devotion!
Heat melts away the ice
Replaced by tethered spite
Before the night sweeps you away
I never will cherish this today
I will let the time dive into the abyss
With the greetings and salutations one will never miss
I will ride into the fiery skies with no care but my own
Landing in turbulent waters in winds that moan
There is a reason but it is unknown
And that is how it will always be
Can’t you see this is good for you?
This is the only way—I fear for you
Abandonment is only an emotion
So, goodbye, farewell
