Once it was all mine, when once it was all yours.
Snagged by carriage traps,
marriage happened to confuse us like back maps of London.
Catching reflective glimpses in your tinted glasses
of the masses backing,
bands snapping
and shoes tapping.

I'm as fast as you in foot races but in racing home,
stopped to tie my shoe laces,
eight paces and you were gone.
Lay in the outline to paint my jawline black and blue,
it's all caught up with me now while I was catching up with you
and then something happens.

A situation clashes into an action and the immediate relapse into the satisfaction of another bottle is inevitable.
It's the regrettable circumstance after coming so far
with your time spent turned to ashes
like a pack of matches left lighting one another at the end of the bar.

Karma only exists where melancholy persists to present itself as an equal,
karma only exists where melancholy persists to present itself as an equal should but I didn't understand,
I couldn't understand
because I thought myself to be too good.
