BT_Flirting Clouds

forgeting intensity
of the clouds

I know it is too late for you to hear me now
but that doesn’t matter
I’m saying this for myself
I’m saying this
for God who’s existence I absolutely doubt
I’m saying this for the years I’ve been robbed of
and impossibility of ever making that right
I’m saying this
for all those who didn’t give up the strike
and go on believing they can change things
even though they know the world to be big lie
there is no flag to fit us all under
no voice nor alcohol
to make things better when
there is no illusion that pain can be avoided
or that every sunset is amazing
