 Grandeur Of Melancholy

Only Yesterday


What I wished everyone away.
And yesterday was today.

What of the future grey.
I've seen the pages of history
tell me of futures that exist
in my eye and wishing today
was yesterday.

Don't give in to what they say.
They never truly believed.
The words we had to say.

What I wished was everyone
was less grey and the world
was a world perfect in design
and showers it's essence to anyone
willing to listen to it's life force
from it's inhabitants.

What I wished was yesterday.
I found in my brain and it
was obtained.
I'll never stray what I believed.
Was only tommorow away.

What I wished everyone away.
And yesterday was today.

What of the future grey.
I've seen the pages of history
tell me of futures that exist
in my eye and wishing today
was yesterday.

Don't give in to what they say.
They never truly believed.
The words we had to say.

What I wished was everyone
was less grey and the world
was a world perfect in design
and showers it's essence to anyone
willing to listen to it's life force
from it's inhabitants.

What I wished was yesterday.
I found in my brain and it
was obtained.
I'll never stray what I believed.
Was only tomorrow away.
I am the grey and you are the later.
In my eye all is in your brain
and you don't believe a word you say.
You'd rather be listening to the earth sing.
The clouds ring to the song of you dying
and not doing everything you wished to.
When it's not in the clouds, or in the brain
or on earth it's here it's always had a place.

When I found this happening. ???
