Peeling off layers of clothes as if they were a bad day,
thrown into a hamper as if it would just go away.
Yet they’ll keep coming back no matter how you try
As the washed out clothes are strung up to dry.
But don’t fret, the sun has made of them a clean slate
Washing pain, blood and the tide of hate.
“You stare, seeing yet not
but feeling all the same.
And the streets are lined with tinsel and lights,
the beating of a drum running in your veins.
What a time to be alive,
When your soul is slowly reined.”
So this month has gone by in a whirlwind and with it came tidings both good and bad. Mostly an internalized juxtaposition but projected nonetheless in less than elegant means. If there is such a thing as a quarter life crisis, rest assured that is what I’m going through. Too many questions about the future are making my head ache.
Nonetheless, here’s some music to ride the wave, if like me, you chose to use music as salvation from what can be best described as a monotonous routine. You’ll find it just as jumbled of a mess as my thoughts, I suppose.
