The Bruised and Rotting Pear

Certain moments make this all worthwhile

'Random' presets left but to defile 

Blink your eyes to see the flash of white

Blink once more to gain a different sight

Milliseconds gazing at the stars

In which I understood you as you are

And in that time the notion came to me

A sigh of love bled out of honesty

The story of a bruised and rotting pear

That learned to dance on wind and open air
