you think you know but you have no idea go ahead and pretend that you don’t see me here avert your eyes oh so casually the unspoken speaks out and i know you see me you hide all your pain beneath that smile of yours what a beauty it is it’s own fragile blur how long will it take till you recognize your lungs are breathing god damn it you’re alive __________ come on let go i know you cry secretly just once i want you to talk honestly look me in the eye let it out scream madly or whisper in my ear quietly trembling we once were friends but then ceased to be do you place blame am i guilty how would i know you won’t talk to me well i’ve had enough i’m not what you want me to be

Echo 02:52
and we shall hum our eclipsed star laughing at our tears we find we are far beyond the borders boundaries binding our hearts i whistle your name a poem scribbled on a wall an echo returns and nothing else yes, nothing else at all

we know a lot now possibly too much about the troubled youth of norfolk virginia about the motivations of science fiction writers and the requisite teenage heartbreak of young albert asterix he beats his highest score and walks along the beach he hopes to see her he’ll never show her but in his masterpiece she is the savior she’s anitgravity and rids the world of evil clad in leather he sees it now adoring fans he wins her heart it’s a best seller beat up by the sailors’ kids he wonders what he ever did without her trapped inside this town impossible to leave it seemed he’d found the answer in his dreams side by side galactic heroes together and though he tries not to believe he knows she’s really gone forever sitting at the station with a bag of clothes his manuscripts and ashes of a savior found, his dried up youth, this oppressive town waiting, wondering unsure of just where he’s going we know a lot now possibly too much about the troubled youth of norfolk virginia about the motivations of science fiction writers and the requisite teenage heart break of young albert asterix
