Greener Grass


Photo: of me by Chino Villatoro

I like to believe that my shadow sees, but I know it never breathes

we walk hollow as the black swallows my darkest memories

I drown deep under the night's stars counting my scars

I get lost finding light from afar

my reflections stare back at me

this is a free flowing conspiracy

drinking and sinking

chasing and erasing

I am drowning past shadows

I never knew who to be because I never even knew me

the frailest hearts get torn apart inside this mystery

I feel like a man when I give a damn

I can live here with my fears because they are part of who I am
