The Time that Lies - Adrian Gabardo

I slept my life away,

I ate my flesh to rot.

The days seem to go by,

and I just lie down waiting to die.

Those beautiful honest moments,

of love and passion,

which I've had before,

are now just memories of the present crashing.

The notes ringing in my ear,

buzz the sweet melody of destruction,

telling me to leave my addictions,

telling me to run to salvation.

The lack of action is like heroin,

running through my veins,

making me feel nice,

messing with my brain.

Time flies,

like a bird,

to the horizon,

out of sight.

Soon enough,

the darkness takes over,

that big ol' sun,

once bright is now done.
