A piece of knowledge trapped before it reached your fingertips
Slipping and seeping into the crevices of your humanity
Romanticizing the beginning of the end?
Ever had a passion you couldn't contain?
A dream that failed to die when you told it
Holding on to your memory
Simmering in the reality it will die.
Ever had a second you couldn't take back?
A mistake you made in an instant
Missing the flaw in your logic
Flogging your guilt for a reason.
Ever had a vision you couldn't complete?
An assignment sent and attempted
Restricted to the bottom pile
Filed in the "never done" section.
Then maybe, just maybe, you've learned how to live.
