EleCivil Posted August 25, 2007 Report Share Posted August 25, 2007 [Nowherebound] We left our homes in the name of discovery That the eyes of far-off traffic lights Might gaze upon our faces To see us glaring back, unafraid, Grins challenging with whatever truths were pulled From the bleeding gums of our hometowns. Under cover of darkness and with false alibis We took to seeking truths on the back of our own lies, With windows deeply tinted to invite all observers To taste the unknown and lust for answers, To cup their hands around their eyes And press their faces against our outlines. We were of the age That most would call “impressionable” And true, we craved impressions For what greater offense than emptiness Exists for three blank pages Once told the traits of ink? We planned to vandalize our tongues With all the words they marked unworthy, Planned to stay up late and think of ways To make them disapprove. We planned to carry our own minds so far We'd find them of no use. And when they came across us, We pounded fists against the sidewalk Beat our chests, sang of ideals And tore hearts to the ground For the fact that we still registered visible Proved to us our failures. - Quote Link to comment
