Too long I’ve been adrift on a forbidden sea
Too much time to wasted speculatively
Obsessing over pain and what could be
Today that realization just stung me,
For have I lived a different life before?
Why do I feel joy no more?
Why am I being drawn to the rocks ashore?
Unprepared for what life has in store?
From thirty thousand feet down to the floor
Have I ever been here before?
Struggling to open perception’s door
Love and heartbreak, what was it all for?
Sometimes I don’t even feel part of the human race
Studying these tired lines upon my face
I must have fallen far from heaven’s grace
Like the love I lost without a trace,
Caught out here in an adverse atmosphere
Too overwhelmed to even shed a tear
Held back from recovery with fear
Where is there an airplane I can steer?
Never let love leave such a void
That it’s forever captured on celluloid
Never allow the loss to make you paranoid
Love is an illusion like a trapezoid,
The more I try to solve this quandary
I feel the walls closing in on me
Time will consume than Wnich sets you free
Despite the broken hearted lover’s pleas,
An obsession with things of the air
A momentary escape from nightmares
It all ended with her affair
Lord, could I have at least have been spared?
