Instant Decays

Time makes me see

This moment is all I need

Never will I concede

to the darkness in me


My mind is in despair

as my lungs reach for air

I become more aware

I exist everywhere


I'm here for the cause

This is life without loss

Put this moment on pause

I am now without laws


caught in the fray

before this instant decays

for my mind plays tricks and my mind betrays

I think I'm losing my mind

stuck here I'm frozen in time

with these thoughts I'm confined

within life's true lies


Far beyond the trees

And something deep within me

Makes it harder to see

and much harder to breathe


If only we could pretend (It seems we could pretend)

That this has no end

Playing over and over and over again


Right here we will stay

as this instant decays

stuck here in phase

this is now always

I can't recollect

How it is we connect

I can learn and perfect

But still feelin neglect


Only now we exist

Reality with a twist

Weaving time weaving lives at this point I persist


As this moment defines

it blurs all the lines

A convoluted design

That plays tricks on the mind


If not now then when

will this play over again

I'm stuck frozen suspend

Now, this has no end

If only we could pretend

That this has no end

Playing over and over and over again


Far beyond the trees

And something deep within me

Makes it harder to see

and much harder to breathe
