Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted
Heartache and homesickness at its finest.


by andrewm89

The sheets are dirty and ready to be renewed
The moon is tired and the sun wants to make new --
The grass is dry and wants to feel the morning dew
Everything is sad but no longer wants to feel blue

The twenties are drifting and floating for thirty
Deep sleeps conquer me because this mind is not sturdy
Resentfully thinking about love that went to waste --
My heart is heavy.... but I will never carry such hate

The grounds of existence shake like an Earthquake --
Silent and secure, but it is time to move tectonic plates
My dear ... My dear -- "When was the last time you felt this much change?"
I said, "I was tired ... so tired of the same thing .."
But my God -- "You blessed and cursed me with this heartache"

I write and I write through the night's wake ...
I love 5am because I speak free for God's sake
What have I learned in this time that I have aged?
The only thing that is constant is to move with this all change --
