  • Dusk - A Study of Sunset

    Since I'm dumb, I accidentally put this in the rules thread last time - so, let's try this again.

    It casts a long shadow across the basked-by-sunset shallows
    A now-sinking ship that set sail for the masked-as-sunshine gallows
    Truth is, it's a little belittling, how the sun reflects off the water and leaves it glistening
    As if for all the ears not listening, the fingers left fidgeting, just waiting for the christening
    I can always twist lips convincing like "there's always another but I'm not just fishing"
    In reality I've already fished in the lost seas of darkness for a dream that I will never be living
    I'm trapped in bittersweet memories, the cause and effect of depression
    So I think back to every word, every smile, every smirk - a natural progression
    Rememberance : my mind's memoirs, maybe masterful, it's music
    It's keys in perfect harmony to attract the good graces of a childish cupid
    A growing dissonance, a million things serving as the crescendo
    A breakneck tempo, the sole instrument's a memento
    Dime a deity, left doubting all dignity
    Cause there isn't any symmetry within the should-be sympathy symphony
    And so I fell in love with a fantasy, cause I didn't want to sit passively
    Left with nothing but past principles, so I scribbled something honest in a rhapsody
    The truth is I'm a human being - just like all of you
    Who caught a brief glimpse of heaven for a second and sort-of wanted a second
    But it doesn't always work like that

    The understated anarchy of loneliness
    Copious hopelessness, opiates served in the form of openess
    Hoping this grows bigger, a kind of redemption that leaves me standing tall
    In reality it's only the bitterness of the rain that'll stay with me after last call
    At the grand opening of the night, across the stage, curtains pass
    Found a bit of bravery on the befallen-upon grass
    Just a little waltz in the rain, fickle, lost in the pain, lost in the feigning of reign
    That defines the name of the shame, cause everything I do is in vain
    Who's he? And no more 'an idiot', cause every word the cold speaks is insidious
    So might as well find the beauty in the hideous
    Hide the anger in the sacred corners of pandora's box
    Broken bones over sticks and rocks, like broken hearts over tricks and talks
    Nothing left here but a single spark
    Maybe one day that'll join the dark
    And there's no point, no point to all of this
    Dancing in the heart of the storm, it doesn't diminish the pain
    But one day it might leave me the reins

    I've seen the tide cometh, and the tide retreat
    So I just stay, merrily chasing a golden fleece
    Where comets streak across the blank, black night sky
    The time is nigh - either fly or die
    Sunrise stole the Ts and left ruthlessly
    In foolish lunacy, aren't we all beautifully
    Parts of a puzzle, every piece of propaganda, every concept
    The context - the progress in contact, even without conquest
    Probably a prospect, the cons and the pros even themselves out
    So it isn't getting con'd, more appropriately called a different route
    Honestly, there's an advancement in acceptance
    And you can't move on if you're trapped in resentment
    Lessons learned from love that last longer than the girl ever would
    They mean more to me than a thousand rejections ever could
    But still I pulled a broken mirror out of the rock and sand
    Where the low tide showcased the promised land
    I told it with bated breath, "You will grow to be something dynamic and impressive
    Because you are honest, you are gallant, and you are festive"
    And I never really let that go, matter of fact I grasped it tight
    It's the only thing to hold onto as the brief day fades to night
    Believe me - I know all dusk will eventually erupt into a brilliant dawn
    And I know this isn't all life has to offer
    I know it all comes back to the sunshine, but
    That doesn't take away from the darkness that I've shifted through
    That doesn't render my mind free from its shackles
    That doesn't reignite the hidden phoenix from within me
    In short, that doesn't right every wrong
    But it does say that, despite all of that
    There's a hope
    There's always a hope
    But sometimes that hope gets lost
    And so I felt it leave my frigid fingertips
    Float out into the brisk winter air
    Leave my world and fly out into the moonlit dusk
    I felt it say its last goodbye, shed its last tear
    And I felt myself jump
    To catch it
    But the only way I could have it was
    If I let it go
    So from the most honest part of my heart
    Thank you
