"When you come to the edge of all that you know, you must believe one of two things: either there will be ground to stand on, or you will be given wings to fly."
— O.R. Melling (The Summer King)

Never have I ever
Not tried to understand what was going through their mind
Not cared about the outcome of my actions, of hers, or his
I never meant to harm another out of sheer enjoyment
Or truly liked to see the tears of another fall
Never is a tricky word, and this is why I say so:
Never is eternal, just as it is with Death
And to know something so thoroughly is a gift given only to a God
Though I can't turn water to wine, or walk on water (yet)
I know that never is a word that never should be used until forever's met its end
I tried never to look back, to see what it was I failed to hold onto
I tried to never shed another tear for the things that went astray
I tried never to fail the people that I loved, but I fail them more each day
It seems that never is a word that hurts more than it heals
It's like a promise that never can be kept
It tears you from me, me from you, and all others from each other
There was a time when life was so black and white
Where forever and ever and never really held some meaning
Now all they hold are Dreams yet to be fulfilled
An empty glass that will never know the touch of soft lips to its rim
Because there is nothing that can come from it any longer
It is like the dog that obediently waits for a Master long deceased
Never to refill his bowl, to yield its ever-hunger
I can toss and turn, sleep deprived each night
Thinking of all the wrong things never to be made right
Never have I ever
Done a wrong to you
But still it will not end the evil s*** they do.
