what you ask just cannot be done, a spineless heart is what i've become.

More from Jordan Newman

i see angels above me, i see demons below me, fighting over heaven.
i loved her more when i was sober.
i don't want a second chance.
love starts with that of a flickerin' cigarette
i swear i could feel your love before i knew your name.

soul mates

*just posting an old piece, not sure if i did already if i did i apologize*

it's hard to believe it'll be two years this fall
because i'm still caught up in the memory of it all.
no where i go and nothing i do seems remotely capable
of vanquishing from my recollection that damn hell;
and who would have thought that hidden in her smile
i'd find a prison? a place where i will surely die?
lost in fits of panic, anxiety and pseudo-reverly;
because still to this day i'm uncertain if it ever
really was as good as i seem to remember it to be?
i rot in the darkness of my own logic as i try to
decypher meaning in all she had to say; but i lay
here motionless, as dusk turns to dust for eternity.
the motions of the day feel as if they may just be
nothing time flowing by me as i no longer long to try
treading in the ocean of time; but please just maybe
understand i wasn't always this way, such a tragedy.
once upon a time i think there was a time when everybody
i didn't miss so badly; but i can't recall when exactly
that may have been and because of that i find it truly
hard to force a smile as i coast on through another day.
