My Own Trackless Path

June 2013

Eyes closed, fists clenched together tight,

trying yet again to forget her face tonight,

walk the streets alone, living day by day,

keeping quiet cause there's not much left to say,


all the attempts at happiness have failed,

i built a loose track so loves train always derailed,

with my heart impaled at each stop, i kept moving,

progressing towards a future even though my heart was losing,


eyes open, deep breath and exhale,

splash cold water on the skin so pale,

keep the car running, the tracks may yet

be replaced perfectly without one regret,


just wanna start something new and bold,

not with a girl that decides to screw and bolt,

without much hold on reality, i crawl by,

on my own trackless path the ball flies.
