Explode and Collapse

beginning at sunset, droning cries of cool
maniacal laughter, adventures and tales
fading away a can at a time

soldier of peace mirror in green
picked me up, kept me warm
locked up the door and dropped the bomb

white dandelion floating around
looking for blue, finding but dull
faded away a tear at a time

sweet curled bloom: virgin of chaos
closed eyes kiss crowned your king
burning star - collapses, explodes

hard and harder i have tried
deep and deeper i have dug
step on the breathing ones
step on to stay afloat

tried hard not to shut down the lights
unable to keep line of sight
unable to stay on the ground
locked the door, faded away

deep and deeper deeper within
high and higher higher in self
stay home dreaming of clouds
stay home to find my place
