"the heart is forever inexperienced."

the vibrations in my ear gave me a strand of hope
not one, or two, or three
and made me feel grounded
did you ever believe...
since i suppose it was a true statement.
somehow lost in the translation
but the figure 8 doesn't feel so empty
there lies a beautiful thing so unexplained
still graced with a described access not yet attainable
we didn't even realize.
angel, anything but gone.
