Stay far away and let the distance grow far and wide to keep me on my toes. Like the day I fell into this hole and asked god why. Am I supposed to know? Or just stay alone and in the dark, keeping time, covered in the night, free from pain, avoiding any chance not to be alone and in the way. Love spills from me. A bucket left outside in the rain. A candle left to burn way too long. And old forgotten flame, small and tired, way to dim to light any space, but still could start a fire to take this town and burn it to the ground. Time will make a fighter out of me or I’ll die alone and in the way. The more of me that’s buried in the mud, the bigger I need to dream, the further to look up. Stuck for now, I sit and await my turn on the ride. There are no more echoes in my heart, and I don’t need anyone, I’m full and I am charged. Night pours in. I barely collect myself this time. There’s probably something more to find. But I’ll never regret the day I was alone and in the way.
