The man cries out inside but is lifeless on the outside
As the world is seen in colors, he views the world as a gray dark place
Time goes by and it feels so strange
It’s like he’s in a dream floating away
The world is running away, but he is standing in place
As he dances around inside his own mind trying to keep up with the rhythm
He somehow keeps getting off beat
He thinks if only he would’ve laughed louder
Then he wouldn’t hear the cry inside
That willows with the wind when the wind whistles
His mind is like trees that sway when the wind laughs that causes commotion
Memories are stored in his mind
So he can remember when times were simple and meaningful will never be lost
The world is moving on, and his life is going with it

What happens to a rose in the summer?
Does it melt
Like ice cream out from the freezer?
Does it dry and shrivel up
Like a raisin in the blazing heat?
Does it fall
Like the leaves in Fall,
Or does it crumble
Like coffee cake.
Maybe it does nothing.
Maybe it just endlessly grows

i'm holding on
to that last tree branch
not moving at all
not taking a chance
Don’t want to hold on
don't want to let go
keeping everything in
so no one will know
all of the things
held inside of me
are starting to seep out
for the world to see
but the outsides
feel like such a scary place
so i hide my feelings
making no mistakes
it used to be different
with beauty all around
but its been destroyed
and forever burnt down
i'm on the edge of the cliff
and won’t feel the fall
but everything stands in front of me
and I could lose that all
Donuts in the Sky
There are donuts in the sky
Stickily sweet and covered in glaze
Don't you see it, right next to the pie?
Affix your gaze to that succulent glaze
A shining varnish
Only my gastric juices can tarnish
