Repeat Performance

Post by audiofool » Thu Nov 24, 2016 10:29 pm

I used to think
what did I know?
the march of time
the high and the low

what matters most
barely registered then
age of acquisition
depleting the souls of men

if I had the option
to repeat the first act
to rewrite the screenplay
wrestle with the facts

I predict the end result
wouldn't garner much applause
there are no second chances
merely effects after the cause

I opened the window
a breeze caressed my face
cold light rain cascading
one ray of light gave chase

spreading hope and cheer
throughout this fallow land
anxiety once bound me
love supplies all demands

catch me before I fall
into your feathery grasp
lying with the lion
now I'm ambling with the asp

follow the directions
etched on the heart
on the stage of becoming
every player has a part.
