I never knew you
01/12/09 at 12:41 PM by Undue Noise
I normally write better than this. That's all I've got to say for myself - bitterness + boredom during philosophy lesson = this

The words I say to make things right.
Always spoken from the wrong mouth.
I sharpen the syllables to soften the blow.
The narrative runs dry when you don't respond.
It took you so long to find yourself.
I wonder if the waiting was worth it.
The only emotions you capture still on a camera.
Frozen and false for the seconds it takes to pose.
Your life is a series of unrelated shots of a smiling face that never grows old.
I can't make that flash burn away when it's the only light that keeps you going.
Thick skin won't save you from loneliness.
Unconsciousness won't save you from waking up.
The answer's between right and wrong.
Light up these tired limbs with hearts and harmony.
Get these feet moving for a cause greater than movement.
Progress for the sake of progress.
Regress for the sake of nothing.
I wish I knew you.

I take a two hour round journey on a train every day. This will probably just be a posting of things I write down on the way; be it poems, rants or thoughts.
