objects in the rearview mirror and things too close to see

Here's a few old ones...

agonization v. 2.0
it's the hour beyond
the next minute of our thought
the second we realize
how a feeling is subjective
to life
one can never know love
without letting it slip through their fingers
like sand of the sea
it's wasted, gone forever
time spent foolishly
it could have been right
but it was wrong
and now it's lost, never known
unable to come to it's full
never realized
waiting for that right moment
the one that must have gone by
a thousand times
but it wasn't quite perfect
the moment was ripe, ready for harvest
yet imperfection was found
and time waited till goodbye
those awful lingering unsaid words
filling the mind with agony
and that empty ocean breeze with cold
who ever knew a scene could break a heart?
some things soothe
and others ignite
bursts of pain - they burn for weeks
like an aching wound it never goes away
constantly reminding him of his waste
and how he never did right by her
now his unsurety is his downfall
and his naivety his torment
it all pokes and prods
a hundred years with one thought
one which never fades, never lessens, never dies
and leaves it's prey wanting more

held at fault for naught (desire of the best never had) -v. 2.0
time and time again he paid
for that beyond his control
he lost it all
and gained it back after the fact
but it was too late
for him to ever be right
his curse haunted day and night
till he became lost again
one hundred years of hell
seemed not long enough
but one burning thought filled his mind
the only memory of his torment
became the one thing he had betrayed
beyond grasp,
and within arms encircled
an empty whole inside
never filled
and the temptation given
seems to be that it can't get worse
but why does life seem to break it,
and never give back the chance?
it's all too easy
to need an end
and yet for reasons unknown now
one will never realize it.

Dashboard Confessional - "Vindicated"

Hope dangles on a string
Like slow spinning redemption
Winding in and winding out
The shine of it has caught my eye
And roped me in
So mesmerizing, so hypnotizing
I am captivated

I am Vindicated
I am selfish
I am wrong
I am right
I swear I'm right
I swear I knew it all along
And I am flawed
But I am cleaning up so well
I am seeing in me now the things you swore you saw yourself
So clear
Like the diamond in your ring
Cut to mirror your intentions
Oversized and overwhelmed
The shine of which has caught my eye
And rendered me so isoloated, so motivated
I am certain now that

So turn
Up the corners of your lips
Part them and feel my finger tips
Trace the moment, fall forever
Defense is paper thin
Just one touch and I'd be in
Too deep now to ever swim against the current
So let me slip away [3x]

So let me slip against the current
So let me slip away [4x]

Slight hopeIt dangles on a string
Like slow spinning redemption...
