In the empty void
smothered by music
and purrs
and the feathers of a thousand naked geese
choking sobs fill the night
Never enough
just to be
never enough
longing for the cape
better stronger faster
the cape never comes
the more that piles on
less the adequacy
dreams of a heart
never to be realized
They were right
it was stupid all along
deeper the night
deeper the fears
with the nearing of dawn
the deeper
the irrelevance
