The Underground Garden: Love Returns to No Home


 

I tossed that key over the edge of the earth
You better go get lost and stay in space
Forget about this dirt!!!
You wanna believe it boomeranged right back into the lock
W
T
Flock of a feather all in my face
Now check it Gods and Goddesses of entertainment
The other and I
The truth and the lie
The all seeing blind
The losing of sight
Why can’t it go quietly into the night?
I stopped caring who’s wrong what’s right
Waved my white flag from within the fight
You know like Celia when the Salsa’s real good?
I was ecstatic seeing the other side the finish line the dryer eye
Fuck yeah I did it.
Then one more bell before the disappearance of the ring
But whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy???
Nothing to prove in love you win or you lose
I’m a fucking champion
I got an open heart
I’m the greatest of all time
I always meant the sigh
I Love You.
I think the key wanted to fit in the lock 1 more time to make sure all understood what was being sent to collect dust
Freedom or bust
The key was shiny!
As ever
That key takes polishing to a new level
I remain oiled up
The key didn’t struggle
We were made to fit each other
Just not to open possibilities
Except the imagining of possibilities
Reality was never really our thing you know
Gods and Goddesses looking down like
“LOOK LOOK!!
Homies aren’t shook!!
They read the book soft streams in brooks
The oceans remain calm and the fault lines sleep
I really think they’re not struggling”
This time we laugh with you
Shred the door
Monsters, Inc. Bitch
We’re just a satisfying itch
I don’t mean the scratch
We don’t want it to go away
Satisfying compromise
Can’t be won’t be must be can’t be won’t be duplicated
The question will always remain
Are we glad we even dated?
To be continued is also a not really.
Grateful for the LOVE I chose to feel
Melts steel
Key and lock meld into atmosphere
Name a comet after our centered feels
No one will ever could ever you know the deal
But remember, we were never real.
Dream on swan song
Ever a lesson on silence over squeal
Ever a crack emboldened by its seal
Por Dios! Peace belated
It’s the greatest
And I never gave up but I also wasn’t waiting
I knew our day would come
But it wouldn’t be the way Man writes of
No tears, no drama, no fight
No regret, no desire, no light
Just a what’s up breath
You know this is till the death
But not the way others intend
We’ve arrived at acceptance and freed each other from the other’s head
Neither of us are dead
We never meant to go for the throat when we weren’t choosing our words
All just said.
Not thought out
We the baddest duo that was never knocked out
For that the key and lock remain attuned
If they were to truly work together they would change the Moon.
…..& Who wants that responsibility?
Adieu
