And I run from the turtle 

Because the walking corpse talks

When you leave what breaks your heart

Behind

A balmy breeze that settles on quiet shoulders

The end of too many promises

And the beginning of one

To yourself

Becomes the bearing standard

Someday I hope to find peace

In what I want

Becoming what I need

Someday I hope

To find the reality

Maybe in your arms

Regret we all know

More than makings

More than a future

Proof inside the requiem of a broken heart

Love only real when it leaves

Because the rest of the time

I already said good-bye

Shattered ends of design never what they seem

She gave me permission

Permission!

So I left

I gave new meaning to what words find in

Departure

Because love never needed conquering

And time called me

Upon crumbled tracks of howling anger

From one essence of worship to another ruptured answer
