From the shore, the ocean is forever. It's a beautiful, dangerous place. Music is tied to the sea, born from the struggle, looking for hope. Because hope belongs in the dark places." -Jon Foreman of SwitchFoot


The deafening silence that overtakes

While the quiet explosion simmers down
Through the closed cracks in my skull,
Letting time destroy and build within.

 

The happily miserable floats while
Drowning in the on a raft of thoughts
As the feelings of black swarm the feeling
Of white as everything fades to grey.

 

The feelings of black swim in the screen as
The colour sinks into the abyss within the sky.
The curse of perfection that is swallowed by
The cure of disaster that inevitably takes over.

 

The hope of tomorrow is quickly dashed by
The presence of the moment. As the
Thoughts of wonder overtake the
Absolute truths of the organized chaos within.

Written using Paradoxes for practice, but really enjoy how it turned out. Please know that this is meant to bring a new perspective, not just words on paper or a screen. Think of this as a call to look beyond what you know and let your brain view things differently.
