[510] Nevermore is Forevermore

A walk with the head down⁣⁣⁣
Confidence fading with each footstep
Words talk about memorial hurt⁣⁣⁣
The hurt pulls down another soul to hurt
The atmosphere and the ambience of a novel⁣⁣⁣
and the will to live inside it, outside⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
Outside, all intentions lose their battle⁣⁣⁣
Calmness comes across as passivity⁣⁣⁣
Love comes across as narcissism⁣⁣⁣
Questionable care loses its way⁣⁣⁣
on the way to her heart ⁣⁣⁣
A walk with the head down leads us astray⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
Still, we return to the same destination
Is change really the need of the hour⁣⁣⁣
when human nature stands erect ⁣⁣⁣
Slipping away in someone else’s tears⁣⁣⁣
The ride back home is still lonely ⁣⁣⁣
The home is still lonely⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
Four walls won’t hold me back⁣⁣⁣
But the walls of the mind⁣⁣⁣
has ears in all directions⁣⁣⁣
Whispers of a neurological dumpster fire⁣⁣⁣
on the heap of all regrets⁣⁣⁣
I wait and I only wait, to add to the pile of memories
(that never was)
