How far can you throw

Sometimes it's cold here                  
Embers white burning                  
Musty smell   cold dark hole                  
How deep do you dig                  
Through the clay and shale rock      
How deep do you dig                  
Til you find your way home                  
Out the front door                  
Sun over my shoulder                  
Ball flying high     
Up to the sky                  
Won't you come out          
To play with me          
How far?            
How far can you throw?              
 A catch with my son!  A catch with my daughter!!                
How far?           
How far can you throw?                
Man! You just keep getting better and better                
How far?       
How far can you throw?              
All these years on                  
Hot white burning embers                  
Steady and strong  
You keep reaching higher                
Climbing mountains of quartz and lyme stone                  
Sturdy and strong time just moves on                  
Still sits with me even when they temp us                  
Still sits with me when I'm alone                  
How far?      
How far can you throw?!

This is about loneliness and neglect. The overcoming of it. Then its pull to take you back into the lonely abyss.
