Vice

I come out of the trance

Still wanting to dance

I don’t want to go back

To the life that plagues me.

I want to stay in the night

Where everything’s alright.

 

I know this can’t last forever

But even still

I’d like to believe it will.

And I’d like to spend

Just a little more time there.

 

When things aren’t going as you’d like

It’s easy to turn to vice

Just to try and make living this life

A bit easier to deal with.

 

And who could blame anyone?

You could still do alright.

But at the end of the night

You may lay awake

And wonder what might.

 

What might have been

Had you not spent all your time

Chasing a dream

That could never come true

And instead

Spent your time

Working on you.

Epiphany

To have that epiphany

That thought

That life changing realization

These are the moments that move our lives forward

And bring it creation

 

Although these moments of clarity

Are fleeting

When you can see your life, and feel the universe

There’s no one you’d rather be meeting

 

And once it vanishes

Just smile and move on

Because if you stare too long

It’ll be gone

 

This is the light that never dies

And here is where the heart of life lies.

“And when the event, the big change in your life, is simply an insight – isn’t that a strange thing?  That absolutely nothing changes except that you see things differently, and you’re less fearful and less anxious and generally stronger as a result: isn’t it amazing that a completely invisible thing in your head can feel realer than anything you’ve experienced before?  You see things more clearly and you know you’re seeing them more clearly.  And it comes to you that this is what it means to love life, this is all anybody who talks seriously about God is ever talking about.  Moments like this.”

-Jonathan Franzen.  The Corrections.

The dance

She never appreciates it when you don’t live your fullest
She’ll hit you with a wrath of fire
To live your purpose is all she asks
Even though it is the grandest task.

I feel we have a soul [sole] purpose
What that is we need to find
This is the first part of your life
I’m not sure what you had in mind.

Living from one fleeting pleasure to the next?
Perhaps a little bit of sex?
Anything to keep your mind off the intuition
Because that is the part that tells the truth.

But it’s not easy
It requires self-discipline
It requires the delaying of pleasures
But the ones that come later
Always end up so much greater.

Without these, everything we do becomes disillusion
And always results in mass confusion
We wonder where we went wrong
But we dare not look at the most obvious
Because that has been our entire life.

Falling in love with a Fantasy

The concept of girls can be so easy to fall in love with

What they could do for you

What they could represent

Who this new one could be

And how she could act

How good the sex could feel

The illusions get built up in our heads

And this can become an addictive cycle

Because reality could never live up to fantasy

So once the fantasy is burst

It’s time to move onto the next

A world lived in our heads is so much easier than a world lived in reality

So why would you ever want to live in reality?
