a million little TV sets, and nothing left

my mind was its own little country and then they took it over

that was not me. that was not what i was about

i was about the books and the pencils and the papers and the clay and the sand

i was about walking through walls and putting out fires

i was about being my own hero in a backyard world

this can't be happening

growing vertically and shrinking inward. drying up. spilling the cup.

in a little while i will be gone

i already miss me sometimes. i miss me most of all.

the morning is my path, the time when i sleep

i'm not here, i'm only making decisions in a dream

this can't be happening

leaving behind the vices and returning to a birth

I N T E R M I S S I O N

bringing about your own feelings

watching a movie from your past. on the #### with sunset.

under the ground with no desire to ever leave the moment.

i reach back for it so many times. i reach back for ### so many nights

sometimes you think of ##, but the memory is now tainted somehow

i will stay. i will somehow stay in that place forever

i will cry inside over that #####. i will always think of the stars.

i will feel the wind through an open window and smile, with sadness

the ######## #### held the unknown on the other side. i waited for it. i waited for ###.

we never really knew

something was so real about something that was so fake

i don't know if anything will ever take its place

i find myself going there in my mind

i find myself not moving from this one spot

i find myself not paying attention to what i have ###, but to what i ###

something so chemical and something so whimsical and something so tragic and something so perfect

something i miss

could they #### ##### once again?

could we watch them in that movie again?

could they talk for hours and forget about how cold it is?

could ignorance be bliss?

could ignorance be something i miss?

i miss you

p.s. no. that is not what it is about. you are wrong. i thought you would think that. but you're wrong. i'm sorry. that's just the way it is. it's interesting to compare what you're thinking and what i was thinking at the time. it's not even the same.
