Magazine

I always dream my life would be
like something on the front
of a magazine
admired by people in the grocery line
waiting to get on with their own lives

But a supernova of comprehension
spoke in dulcet tones one evening
broke the hold of all the tomes
the breath they breathed upon my life
fades away from being as brilliance
took hold of all thats left of my mind

so shallow were my infant dreams
so pitiful the waves I seek
acknowledging how miniscule
how tiny how meaningless
my life has always been
will always be

as long as I refuse to see
everything there is to see
stop being trapped on moments beings
start being enrapt of beyond the dreams
the skies the stars they are nothing
but grains of dust on grains of sand
on swatchs of beach bordering
the great wide sea of that’s being

I always dreamed my life would be
like something on the front
of a magazines
admired by people in the grocery line
waiting to get on with their own lives

It’s supposed to scare me to comprehend
how meaningless it all has been
it’s supposed to drive me screaming insane
but instead it makes me smile today
to know that I am nothing special

Everything I know and see
Every dream I’ve ever dreamed
I am the master of all these things
but still I stand and sway to the beat
I am nothing at all

I always dreamed my life would be
spent with you on the magazines
admired by the jealoes wife
with screaming brats in the grocery line
she’d wish to God she had our lives

All the notes the beats the bass slithering
the snare it keeps the cymbal screams
the song it means nothing at all
cause no matter how they compose this song
another one will come along

The matter hits anti-matter and reality impodes
the density pulls on everything
but however meaningless I seem
However meaningless my dreams
my wants and desires that mean nothing
I resist the pull the song to go

I always will hold this dream
where everyone wishes they could be me
cause I’ll be the one standing aside
the center of all there is
I hold my dreams forever and ever
left reality fade from being
I’ll stand alone infinity
a single candle ever burning
