The Road to Finding Oneself

Give me ways to fall asleep,
I’m floating across this reef.
The moon’s the apple of my eyes,
I will crunch a chunk and dip it into the stars.

I pretend I am real,
I am stuck into your routine,
I fall in love with the way I air dry
Tell the world I am free and alone.

And I mean it,
When I say I’ll make what I can out of this,
Harvest life’s crops into concentric circles
Like I dropped an acorn into the river.

Angels are my Daddy’s lover,
And Mama’s carer,
When I go home I want their hold to crush me to their hearts
That I can no longer heave out the air from my lungs.

I push the kisses into the bottle,
Send them across the sea,
Can anybody find me?
I am smothered by sea air and 3 showers a day,

Spending the money like sailors on liquor,
The clouds are my eyeshadow,
The night my eyeliner,
The sunrise will be my lipstick,

I lacquer layer upon layer of insecurity onto my feeble soul,
Don’t you know what its like to feel whole?
Open your arms wide, there’s creativity inside,
And passion puts itself on a spin,

I loved you this whole time.
