I sit here thinking, 
Mind always ticking.
Tick, tick, ticking - like an itch.
This one's a bitch.
Fastest times thus far but
Haven't raised the bar- at all.
Shall I call our downfall?
?? Too much. ??
Too much - not to handle but to distort.
Distract.
Always find time to retract
Inside of your soul.
She usually knows the path to go.

Flooding of the insignificant, but
Look closer.
Closer.
Still-closer.
So connected.
Misdirected.
Still holding faith you'll finally get it.
Lifting the vail most are not ready to except.
While we swim around in debt.
•°•°•°•°•
Oh, and how every Empire has had its reign!
...looking back to grasp their pain.
The only lesson I repeatedly tell myself - once you know better, do better.
Will you do the same?


All I ask - don't put me to shame. ????
