Transgressing Realities

Written by: Joseph Garcia

 
all i wanted was a kingdom that stretched as far as my eye could see not adorned in gold or fancy flowers just lost love and memories i've lost, and probably always will i feel im growing ever wiser even as dreadful time stands still there is that man behind the mirrored glass and i can feel his stare pierce through this elusive dream im chasing i dont ever want to reach i see me standing there in shock with everything thats sincerely me that hurricane in my stomach swirling more than the angriest of seas only to open the behemoth of a door and plunge head and mind into oblivion ill never know which is worse knowing the end or having a false beginning theres a price tag etched in my head and the whole world has been bidding these lungs and my time may be borrowed but every struggling breath shall be forever mine my body hangs in the gallows yet the world is which swings with the breeze all i wanted was my kingdom that we built, you and me.
