wondering when i'd finally get better was keeping me from actually getting better, so i started using my time to wonder about better things

smiles like the clouds;
        soaring above anyone who cares

laughing like the rain;
        melodic and a special kind of tune 

loneliness like the ocean
        seemingly endless from this perspective
spanning until the horizon in each direction
        how long until this flimsy raft reaches land?


belting out lyrics like a lion's roar;
        prideful and majestically terrifying

trust coming easier than breathing
        inhale, exhale... or i could just talk to you

you grabbed me by the heart
        and squeezed
and my god i've never felt
        more constricted
lamenting the cruelty of ignorance and hurt
