Run Around Circles

I run circles, on run away, escape before tornado
I dive down into the bosoms of rivers 
To be baptised on rebirth, this birth, labour

This pain is hard felt  
This mind, on run, overrun, running shoes
Thoughts besiege on overload 

Over clouds of grey in nightmare, migraine 
As migraine set sit comfort 
To discomfort my thinking, in thoughts 

I can't see the light 
It pierces through my lens, with alien's prodding 
And finds its way, in rays into my skull's behind

I can't see the rain; 
Thunders bark, frightens my eyes to shut 
It is like weather's felt on chilled senses of skin, cold

But this is emotional; the blues, turn pages, chapters
Climax of the summer in breeze, leaves that fall
Of the dying decade, funerals for lost friends, lost souls

It is fair-well to this chapter, 
And nostalgia demands his minutes in silence 
And I feel the pain of letting go

So many memories, in stock take 
Names list and memories that fades 
To make way, for what comes after, the afters

Old ghost faces, fair well 
And don't look back, we done with that,
New moons, birthing in the horizon

I promise I would do the same, 
Just keep walking, through time passage
Not looking back; in circles, to recycle 

This far gone, this is fair well..
Fair well to this decade 
In afters, after the 90s

To old friends lost
This is fair well 
Rest in peace, to the one's gone..
