Broken Ladders

Broken Ladders

Desperate strides and muted footsteps
Shrieking laughter, ruined reps
A backwards look of pain and longing and hopeless hopeless optimism

The future’s bright, it blinds my vision
And eyes that fill with blind derision
And minds that cloud with nothing but the longest endless sigh

Your times are mine and mine alone
(ha!) As I quietly get stoned
With naught but love and war to grace my slowly breaking heart

The future’s far (look! here it comes)
From me to you and here to from
Let’s muddle on through all this glory, pain and longing longing

Cuz when you’re born amongst the stars
The fall to Earth seems much more far
And leaves you groping up the ladder for what will never (should) be yours
