Where Are YouA Chapter by Joshua Randall
For my brother, may you rest in peace
Bars pack by rains from storming;
Starring straight though stools of laughter
Thunder shared with me a warning;
Six hours from disaster
“Yeah, what’s up..?”
Annette- “There’s been an accident, your brothers…”
Annette - “Jake’s dead.”
Annette - "Josh, hello?"
"...I'm on my way"
"...I'm on my way"
Palm on chin, face forward,
Grin, tapped spinal cord;
and tell me, that I’m still asleep.
Burn that thought this disbelief
Just grave this f****n’ lie
…tell me that you’re still alive.
Be f****n’ with my head, like you use to.
Before my heart caves through
so I can show you, how I'm really moved by you.
Songs of poetry and despair,
Come creeping every time.
In onyx, nowhere.
Like-thoughts make conscious, crime
And how could I have stood, prayer?
And not be moved by you?
How could we have argued there?
Smoke, spun by bulb in hand,
Came lighter, too brighten.
Tell me that your smoke;
that your high made proud of you.
Cradled little in blue, what’s left?
In the meadows, at hand.
That intimidation left us, feeling misunderstood.
Left deterred, derailed;
and we said we did the best we could.
Where are you? We failed.
On the other hand,
Whats now left to withstand?
Why, there’s nothing better than this.
How, there’s nothing greater than this.
On every lunch break, from sun-up to f**k off.
How did it get this far?
How did we get this far?
I miss you...
that there's no mistakes.
But could you tell them..?
In my place, in the place of us?
With the role that’s been given to you.
Cuz you’re everything, the last string.
A fucked memory;
in some basket of bullshit sympathy.
Where are you?
