the distance between screams

the man i am now from who i was to who i may still become

so many times i lied that i ran out of words that didn’t sing true

excuses fell apart like dream in the first moments of waking

now i navigate the distance between

seeking the path that leads to something more than nothing but nothing more than i deserve

following the echoed ruminations of hopeless despair

every ghost i gave up that still haunts me tries to pull me astray

i am a stray

a lone puppy with no collar running across the highway with no understanding of mechanical beasts bearing down

seeking the open spots of emptiness

the crowded homes of distant hearts

now i follow the truth no matter how bitter the taste as it spills from my tongue like acid

trapped in the distances between

another voice lost in the vacuum

One thought on “vacuum
