We're clouds that were sweet lullabies
And dilemmas that reassure a salty touch
Of birds flying high through autumn-tinged skies
Dysfunction incorporated scheming as such.
Smoke-stained thank-yous that temper a hail
Beneath your wavering impenetrability.
As humility merges with cheap poison retail
Apprehension uncovers your water-logged invisibility.
Counterfeit comedies dance in between awkward welcomes
As I fall victim to your sunlit smiles
Park benches taste progress with more insentient outcomes
Because acid-based makeup puts pride in denial.
Flawless disorder gives the illusion of normality
While hidden discomforts betray your indifference
Tears will soon fall as blades to your sanity
As I question anxiety over deceit as a preference.
Internal umbrellas protect you from opportunistic showers,
Treasure troves hiding in the lack of motivation.
I deviously prod the shy, freedom-deprived flowers
That are your alienated eyes drowning in unwanted information.
Only the maps drawn laced through your voice
Are my guidance past this overly cancer-lined playground
Mild mechanical disorders juxtapose with my choice
Of dancing with you as we continue to go down.
