I Do Suppose a Time...

I do suppose a time, a place, one of unordinary space
That I’ll catch up to you,
Or will you catch up to me?
Your then reality, one of frugal vitality
Fled before I knew you
And took a gift I’ll never see.

But I do suppose, just out of spite,
High above the starry delight
You’ll push that mud behind you,
And perhaps I’ll fly with you
when I fly tonight in a dream-filled goodnight.

And when I soar, I’ll never come down…
Our lives were lived with many around…

I cease to ask you many of my curiosities,
Fearing you’d disregard them like all of these…
What is the taste of a bullet’s blood
if mutually, each are aged well beyond your times (and are)
Encased in a mud-soaked bottle of wine?
Your blooms would’ve been fine,
Safe from a rainfall’s fury,
And I’d hear your songs of some kind of glory:
But for now, just suppose, I’ll keep your story.

You’re only a movie now, one I can’t rewind
Replacing your sad troubles with nothing but mine.
The silenced warnings you once ignored
Should have laughed a little louder than your deafening lost chords.
Nothing remains as long as it seems;
To say “so long, farewell,” and into my dreams.
Your eminent grace is forever encased,
And none can replace your memorable face.

So then I will fly to your place of rest,
And I’ll never return to the wasteful west…

I do suppose that time, that place; the one of unordinary space
When I couldn’t catch up to you,
You wouldn’t catch up to me.
Though, I didn’t lose my fantasy
Of your true reality.
The one of frugal vitality
Fled before I knew you
And took you:
The gift I’ll never see.

I Do Suppose a Time...

Artist's Description

This is a dedication to my musical hero, John Entwistle. His short life was the reason I wrote this. The way he was lost was not tragic but should not have happened at that time or place. I wish like hell I could’ve experienced a live show from him. He is the musical talent and gift I’ll now never be able to see.
