"Any intelligent fool can make things bigger and more complex; it takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction." -Albert Eins


You're living life to die
You'll fall in love and cry
You think that time has stopped
Yet the world keeps on spinning

You've fallen down a hole
You've sold away your soul
You want a new beginning
Yet wish that it'd all end

You listen, and don't learn
You let your emptiness churn
You've chilled your heart and mind
Yet yearn for understanding company

You believe in nothing higher
You see faces in the fire
You can't explain a thing
Yet have brought upon yourself such contradictions


The author's comments:
I got the idea for this poem laying in bed thinking about what it'd be like to live someone else's life. I don't know why, but it'd seemed realtively ok verse wise so...ya.
