Tangerine (free) 03:30
I got sick, you looked after me. Said to drink water and eat some tangerines. A Classic Burgundy to drown that which burdens me. The form lacks in certainty, at least it ain't plastic impurity. Mirror face, not sure it's me. I churn like seas, rise like smoke from the burning. Swerving, caught hind-sight in rear view, 20/20 hourglass glance as I peer through. I'm near you, although I'm covered in skin so no one gets to come in. I break me down to build up from nothing then I build me up for my self destruction. What then is my bliss to speak? I woke up from a fitfull sleep. Sweat dripped to sheets, the nightmare mysteries strip the stigma. Half man, half enigma. Indecisive, spin the crisis to like this, embracing days of Dionysis. Right quick to lifeless, face harm met in a car wreck like, "Finally some excitement." Night wept 'til dew dropping dawn and spawned a dense chill, I was sprawled on the lawn, unthawed and unresolved. then I got sick, you looked after me. Said to drink water and eat some tangerines. I'm a rock, I'm an island. I'm the clock ticking violent. I'm the third day rising right when the blue moon was swooned by high noon and gave birth to horizon. In silence I'm pacing steps, thinking bout your naked breasts against my sacred flesh. In case you're stressed or are facing death and need reserves I had to take your breath. We're just Sapiens submerged in something supposedly so important, of course it's not. Of course it's unorthodox how a sordid crop makes the whole orchard rot. I morph boxes to open air space. I'm climbing up the down staircase. I'm where ways start to split and fog and mist fades as it caught my drift. I'm a part of this, of what, of it all. At first butterflies in my stomach crawled, then I got cacooned 'til my wings bursted out and soared with freeform in the pre-storm winds. I get blown away, protege of capricious impulse, speachless engulfed. I need to indulge past the pragmatic and late day traffic, let's escape static. My way is pathless, walked feet to bare bones. Caught in the storm and don't know where's home. Just scared and unprepared. then I got sick, you looked after me. Said to drink water and eat some tangerines. We all fall down and lie there in our plasticine poses in caskets beneath the roses and so it goes.
