Caught myself a sparrow today; in my hand I held it tight, lest it flies away.
Thought to myself… should I clip its wings? Keep it with me forever… till time stands still and everything else goes away?
The sparrow looked me in the eye and asked, “Why don’t we sail away, you and I… on the high seas we’ll ride the waves till all memory of you and me fade away…”
Should I? Nothing to forward to.. nothing to turn back on… Yes… I think I will walk the plank and take a leap of faith… Ride the black waters of oblivion until I pass away.
The beast was here all along…
