This Adventure Has to Continue
Everything has come out of me; all is clear
"Now I will see you inside and out"
Let me find a vein and you will sleep like a baby
A small part of me fantasized about never returning
What a painless way to die
Fly Fly away to the heavens
But I know more hearts would be broken than I ever experienced
I wake up from a deep happy dream
And I realize that this adventure has to continue
I begin walking miles toward transportation
As I shake from hunger and fatigue - fifty - five hours is along time without nutrients
I look to my right; unfamiliar faces
I look to my left; no one I can recognize
I look straight ahead toward a crowd full of strangers
I open my wallet without a penny to spare
I feel the snake tugging at my heart
"I can make your life fulfilled again"
I do feel a bit empty
I close my eyes and I see love, I see millions of dollars, and I hear laughter
My arms open wide grasping for the future
And then the rest of this buzz wears off
I am home; I know because you are cradling me in your arms and I look empty and pale when I look up
We are still struggling; struggling for the unknown
And I wont walk away because I can bare it
Forgive me for my mistakes and the burdens I've laid upon your shoulders
I am remorseful for my troubles that you are better off without
I feel a bit selfish for loving you and finding a home in your emotions
