For Some Reason

All of a sudden there’s nothing more to say
So I just sit back and watch the day
Observe and wonder as it passes away

A maiden’s grave;
A tidal wave

Of such magnificent force
That all of a sudden there’s no alternate course
To accepting my fate
(it seems; sitting here was the biggest mistake I ever made)

All of a sudden I’m scared of going under
To sink of swim has become just meaningless wonder

I couldn’t hold my head up even if it was lighter
My hearts made of lead and has always been the fighter

No codes left to decipher
No logic left to apply
Simply a question of how it passes by: Psychotic or vacant?
That look in my eye

And for some reason
I no longer understand:

The avalanche in snowflakes and
The hourglass in terms of grains of sand

I have a kaleidoscope of broken memories making picture perfect
By indiscernible accident

It’s likely…

That I’d push the big red button and end up with world peace
And it would seem all along that that is what my intention had been
Because even in moments of self destruction
My subconscious creates beauty
In perfect conjunction

That is,

If I can understand

The love hidden behind
Millions of tiny raindrops converging together to make the ocean
Or hundreds of ingredients making a chemical reaction and becoming a potion

Or two people even
Interaction n scientific motion
Making tranquillity
Or commotion

Through no fault of their own except the choice to pursue mutual devotion

All of a sudden

I understand

The weight of
Not even comparable to a grain of sand

And….For some reason…

We lie here on her beaches
Listening to the
Glistening feathers
The sandcastles teach us.

No need to worry of floods if the ocean can’t reach us
