This emptiness, this dull hum of existence.
Does anything really matter?
We are a species shouting out to the universe,
Entirely wrapped up in our own little knots,
What does it mean to discover the universe?
Does the truth of our existence lie in our contribution to the stars,
Or upon the raw heels of a refugee?
Does our forsaken humanity cry out with injustice?
Empty stomachs moan,
Tossing food in the trash.
You don’t have any real problems, do you now?
I’ve known you only a short while,
In a short amount of time,
And in that narrow window
A breeze swept through,
With a bounty of fruitfulness.
I’ve spent more time with you in one month
Than I have with some friends in the last year.
You’ve been my waking moment,
my peaceful slumber,
My sweet dream.
You have changed the time.
You were the needed partition,
You stopped the clock.
And made time sweet again,
Instead of a thorn in my side,
Instead of a burden on my aching heart.
You’ve spent a lot on me.
A lot of time with me.
That’s what really matters.
That’s what people really need to invest.
Time makes the tea steep,
Makes the dye sink in,
to the tapestry of our lives.
I need actions not words.
No making plans or promises.
Doing and being.
Spending your time with me.
People don’t realize,
You have to be careful where you spend your time.
Cause that’s expensive shit, baby.
