Wabi-Sabi

Daydreaming nihilist. Code maniac with a coffee addiction. Music, movie buff. High functioning alcoholic.

hold-your-colour

You know that zephyr you couldn't catch
The sand dispersed from your grasp
That friend who lost path
While you waited cast away
Oh adulthood, your wrath

You know that home turned to tide
The downtime under busted lights
Squandered hours for an asinine
Closure is a fool's game 
Oh adulthood, you play dice

You know when days turned salt to sap
Poured victory into broken slabs
Taught you to surf without a crash
Sagacity braised your hair to grey
Oh adulthood, you built a man 

And you know when life is your consort
Watch babies learn more than Armstrong
'The beauty of life is that it's lost'
You've held your colour to the final day
Oh stars, remember, we've met before
