The ringing of the telephone
disturbs you from your sleep
Voices sound through crowded
wires like ultrasonic creep
You drink your fill of pregnant sighs
and thoughts upon the day
And banish thoughts of futures
while the moments slip away

In the morning, were you with me?

We walked the hill,
we talked for days,
but it wasn't anything we
could maintain
Was it just a phase that we
had to go through
along the way
to something great
Or something strange
or something nobody could change?

Is it just distraction that
will quickly pass away?
Addition by subtraction,
would it be too much to pay?
Would you really want it
if it sat there on the shelf
To take down and sample
free in moments to yourself?


Do our lives run in circles or
are they really only lines?
Does everything that happens
happen many, many times?
Or do we only get it once
and put it in a box
Of mysteries and secrets and
dreams that time unlocks?
