ASAP People

I’m in a crowd moving on alone, you’d think that I’d be able to tell the forest from the trees but I’m too close to tell the difference.
I fear that if I back away too much I’ll lose all sense of direction while I practice deflection like a Buddhist with a purpose while in this state of emotion.
People talking like they don’t know how to listen.
People living like they don’t know what a heart’s for.
If there’s emotion you’ve got to let it show.
Do you see a flicker of pain in these eyes?
Leave your worries behind instead of thinking “Oh my God“.
We’ve got pieces missing because we’re puzzles that don’t want to be figured out so easily.
Calling, waiting, debating – Give it time to sink in.
I’m putting down the receiver, I don’t want to hang on every word you say.
Past the point of fighting questions or being scared to let go.

Sometimes silence is the only answer worth giving, so forgive me for not spelling everything out at the drop of a hat.
Let’s face it, this was never what you wanted.
On one hand you’ve got karma and on the other something else that I can’t control.
I’m trying not to fear it because I need to save her.
Somebody save me, I’m looking in the mirror trying not to feel hurt.
Some things can’t be deferred and can only be referred to as an “immediate threat” to the many ways that you love.
Before we drift away let us stay still for a moment, knowing that what we had was worth it, maybe for the first and the last time.
I’d rather take this fall than not to feel at all.
I’ll be the lonely one until I find someone with all of my desires for someone to hold while reaching for places that others would not dare to go.
