Bleeding ink #1,835

Remember all you children
The sky – like water in your hands
All the flowers are wilting
In the summer sun
Waiting on the rains – again
—-
We don’t have time on a mantle
We don’t have forever and ever after all
——
I wonder if they told you
How to live and love
When the darkness comes on strong
There are fires that burn the heart and blood
There are colds that set in your heart and bone
There is truth
And there is pain that settles in your eyes
——
Forever
Forever
Oh my youth
——
Forever
——
They say everyone has an excuse
I wonder how many of us have ever really seen you say no
I wonder if we even know what to do with it
They said he broke her after the fall
She tried to say no
Then she didn’t try at all
Don’t be afraid of hurting feelings
No is enough
You shouldn’t have to keep pushing
Even if you’ve only just changed your mind
No is enough
No excuse
No reasons
No explanations
No apology
No is complete
In life, art, work and love

Learn to hear your own heart
Learn to read those you’re with
———

We don’t have time on a mantle
We don’t have forever and ever after all
We don’t have time to keep wasting
On things that don’t really matter to us at all…

Forever
Forever
Whatever
Forever
What if it has nothing to do with us at all
