From the 2011 EP a month project.


Two seeds from the same pod
Planted congruently
Malnourished just the same
One stays indoors, mostly
The other just inside their brain
Grew up parallel
With perpendicular paths
Heaps of resentment
Tarnished understandings of family
Where each phone call is a time bomb
Next chapter was foreshadowed previous to their moon cycle
Internally, they long for connection
External tells of hollow tales
Feeling like it was meant to be more than him and I
Two wall flowers with identical interpretations of this broken glass
It's a tranquil remembrance in which our emotions are finally able to cope and understand what's passed

See beauty before me, pray to lift him up
Shine for you and I
Unaware of who hears my fears, feels my insides
Paradise was only a foolish dream
No place else I'd rather be, than in his life
Wished once to a thousand times
Erase all pain he'd experienced yet it's only made him stronger
Kids can be so vile, somehow adults aren't any better
Caught a glimpse of truth, I held it to my eyes

All that reaps, sewing benefits
Target practice of love's the hardest gift
Knowing there's one road to live
Show him construction in a safer haven
Genius of a deeper flavor
My cursive draws a rope that ties our paper airplanes together
From forever 'til the end of stanza
It's like acceptance is our only answer
To these blank pages where our indentations breath oxygen
Longed for an act of knowledge
Counting time until we meet our maker
I hate this chance of fate
Can't accept who might go sooner
Brother, I hope you fulfill your hunger

Caught a glimpse of truth, I held it to my eyes
Caught a glimpse of you, I held you in my mind
Caught a glimpse of you, I held you to my eyes
Caught a glimpse of truth, I held it in my mind
