a feeling, a thought, and a belief

My room is dark and full of gloom
but don't consider this my tomb,
just a place
for me to retreat
when the world knocks me off my feet

just crawl into bed
curling in a ball
and rest my head,
tomorrow is a new day
another chance for the world to say
why we are here

though it's not always clear
I need to understand the messages
painted with the sky, etched with sand

I stumbled down stardust lane
my head filled with air,
and my knees cracked
like two candy canes,
collapsing on the ground
with pyrite in my mouth
but I'm still reaching out

A woman found me
lying in ashes
wrapping her arms around me
asked what hurt,

a soul filled with apathy and doubt
but I see a kind heart that gleams
I suddenly awoke from this dream
to find I was crying

tears of joy streamed down my face
so clear now what I have to do
how could it be that I never knew?

light broke through the windowpane
and liquid gold healed my troubled brain
there's nothing to fear
love is always near
So I'll live each day like it's my last
doing what I do,
try and poison my flask
cause I'm drinking in life and it's divine
sweeter than candy
or strawberry wine

My heart's exploding now
and my love is pouring out
and all the kids come running to fill their glasses
before their mourning philosophy classes
