When it comes is when it goes
Not too soon
No tell-tale signs defined

It feels like a rash
On the skin
A turbulence resides

Inside bright it shines
Like the sun
Blinding the sore eyes

Simple thoughts, what and if
Complex lines
The recipe revealed

It takes more than this
More than mind
More than equal share

More than all that is left
Not so much
If endings ever fail

What if change occurs
Routine fails
Entanglements resolve

Conflict locked away
A simple fight
No reason to defy

Embrace the bitter pill
The cheaper fill
It’s all that now remains

Crawl back head up high
Lost the fight
It’s hurt that dwells inside

Poor kid fell into the well

Hey ho, anybody home

When it goes it is too late
Way too soon
The truth of signs defined

The rash truly gone
On the skin
A mark now in its place

Inside flames ignite
Like the sun
Burning through defiance

Simple thoughts, blown away
Complex hurt
The recipe of taste

It took more than this
More than hope
More than what is left

More than one dares to hope
In the end
Endings never fail

The road to success
It’s much more
Less than accounted for

Infused black nutshell
It’s over now
Sealed and sent to hell

That change never came
Routine prevailed
Entanglements contained

Conflict all unleashed
The urge to fight
To find the reason why

Why taste the bitter pill
Why the thrill
It’s all slipped out of sight

Embrace, head up high
Into the night
It's been a fair fight
