What Once Was Me

Derelict in my dedication
Unfaithful to my resolve
Silence formed from medication
Indifferent to what's not solved
Left to mention memories
Telling stories I shouldn't repeat
Escaping shadows
Chasing dreams
Coming out as
The walls recede


And as the tide crashes to the shore
Turmoil stirs on border lines
While the oceans chide forevermore
Time's sands come to life


Tumult in a tortured mind
Left to fend alone to die


Insolence breeds discontent
As I search for my lost innocence
Escaping shadows
Chasing dreams
Falling far from
What once was me

Is the air fresher there?  I

Is the air fresher there? 

I can never decide

its always a whif of one thing or another...

i could relate but on what level I couldn't tell you but it certainly resonates. Loved it.

You say that

Like we relate on a single level ;)
As far as confusion mixed with blindsight goes, this one was lost on me as well.

The world itself is a giant

The world itself is a giant treadmill.

As are

Most of the signals that traverse my synapses.

Always falling

Those sands are, counting down to emptiness.
