thoroughly happy
can only be achieved
when reality begins
resembling dreams.

limbs like lead,
cotton-mouthed
from fear,
limbs like lead,
so you just stayed
here.

there's your change
laying on the street,
so why are you
walking?
why are you
crossing?

limbs like lead,
cotton-mouthed
from fear,
limbs like lead,
so you just stayed
here.

wait for assurance,
and wish it could
be bought.
wait for chances,
but only notice
when they're lost.

cry tears and
sadden when
they dry;
all feeling's
gone, but
water still
seems right.
