Take # 48

 
This is take number 48  
So place another candle on the cake
I'll hurry because the flames might set the set on fire
For heaven sake donít make Ďem wait
The time is passing at a faster rate
With a quick blow Iíll wish for that which I desire
 
And thatís to balance my Gemini
Because he and I donít look eye to eye
Itís a reflection in the mirror with a peculiar trait
The weight of the years are amplified
As time flies by it leaves me wide eyed
Something is tearing from me making an escape
 
I know that Iím not losing my mind
Or perhaps this may be borderline
My personalities are splitting taking different shapes
With every year that I get older
Each persona is becoming bolder
Some give less fucks as they pass thru Walterís gate
 
I donít mean to exacerbate
And I do care so I will elaborate
But it looks like more of mes are born with every verse
Maybe itís just my imagination
Or the thought of artistic creation
My other selves run away into a (W)alternate universe
 
It seems that each dream is a scheme
A story played out behind the screen
Every decision made became a different path and fate
Thus when I think about the years
I appreciate the laughs and tears
When days like today I look back to reflect and meditate
