Pushed Too Far


A blank expression

A mind in daze

Worlds scrambled like eggs

Ev'rything jumbled up

A lots happened to you

You give up

Morning snapped your heart in two

The night fades your memory away

You try to think

You only feel

Love failed you

What's the deal?

You asked for too much

You got no enough

You cannot be contained

You are wild



Able to express

Just not to understand

You've won the game of losing

While losing the game of winning

Nothing computes

When your head spins

Ev'ry one left you

You're all alone

Only to be recognised

As mistaken for somebody else

Being changed for the better

But still not good enough

Why even try?

The togetherness has stopped

Ev'rything's in pieces

Where is the luck?





Time is like a scibble in an Ether-Sketch now

And you cannot recall what's really

Going on
