The Underground Garden: Room 231 Fool’s Wealth


 

From The Other Sides

So that was it
And now we know231
Once times infinity isn’t enough
There’s too much to be done
To be on Our Run
Other things that need to happen
So we can’t make things happen
Like Us

To close the door and turn the lock
To get undressed and just talk
To rub our shoulders to be in love
To allow another to hit the spot
To seek and find what brings you peace
To master my humble giving
To let myself be traveled through
To give myself to receiving you

To have you control my lack of control

To want more and more

Know there’s no reason to walk out the door
Except
The Real World

And what it needs to have done

It’s all in wait while we’re having fun

Being Us
Which is more than we can handle

Our happenings to flickering candles
Discreetly living to avoid the scandal
Of viviendo lo nuestro

We both know how that goes

So good we run from it
It’s distracting
Too deep
Toodeep

Too challenging
Too easy

I’m running honey
And I’m not looking back
I’ll see you after three curves
For we always come back

We are full circle

On different courses

Unable to afford detours
Of that we’re both sure
Of us we’re both sure
Once the last one walking in closes the door
The Real World exists no more

That’s just a cost we can’t afford

Our silent private lovely time together
Cannot be worth more
Than what we give it

How many lives depend on it?

Living our madness is quite selfish
Not living our madness would be quite foolish

It’s a quench
A refresh
A muse
A tune
A so lovely groove

Together as Two, never as One

Living a truth and calling it Fun

Breathing in fears

Disengaging Love

It just isn’t enough yet gives us more than we want.

Poor Us.
