Oh, phantom memories in their ever-haunting ways
Seeping colorful dreams that paint the chance of escape
I surrender this skin, burnt flesh reformed into something pleasant
A soul of martyr to remain a lost lover for centuries
Thin layers of time have folded in this simple state of mind
Senses attacked by fables now threatening to embalm hindsight
Since when did we decide to accept fate as bestowed by the heavens?
I forfeit my role in consciousness to prove my dedication
For thy heart, erase these foreign layers of today
We are one in the same as we were yesterday
No wiser in understanding the common assemblage
Forever incomplete in the art of mental association
Consume this World, learn to inwardly imbibe
There’s poison in the feelings thickening our minds
Only a few need to forget so the rest will survive
You must continue, I choose action in sacrifice
I am grateful for you ❤
My band released a video yesterday for our song ‘Field of Hearts.’ This was such a fun experience, we recorded all of it at Olin Park in Madison, Wisconsin. I learned a lot about videography and editing, including how awkward it is to be on camera…hellooooo close-ups!! But overall, I am so proud to have been apart of this project and I’m grateful for all of the help we received in making it possible.
The inspiration behind the story might be interesting to some of my long-term WordPress friends, we loosely based the idea from a piece I wrote and published on here March 31, 2013: Muse Writer – The Queen of Hearts
Looking back now, I posted this three years prior to the day that The Fancy Pears played our first show at the High Noon Saloon in Madison and almost four years prior from the present. Crazy how everything seems to come full circle!
I have five minutes
Why am I always tied to the clock?
Numbers that hide the faces of everyone else around
I don’t want to go back yet…
I miss him, I miss the puppies
I want to relax and enjoy the snow
But here I am again counting
I can never focus on anything else
I am grateful to be employed, even if I’d rather spend the day alone writing. ❤
