Running to Tomorrow

intense and short term but now in tattered pieces

hands still bleeding from trying to rebuild it

i thought if i stayed a bit longer i might recapture it

more the stupid fool, never realizing


now all that's left to do is burn the bridges

retrace the steps to my old life

lick my wounds in earnest

kill it, just kill it


so much for the melodrama

i can hear the world shouting

im just a tiny pebble

i must hold it together


so im back in the pink

i have chased out all the darkness

the sun is blindingly beautiful

the world an enchanted forest


i'm leaving my cliched life behind

dusting off the dirt and grime

a long bath, a warm drink, a deep sleep

running towards tomorrow
