these are songs of souls plunging down into dark murky fires and pluming upward into something resembling sun-streaked water. sometimes a person encounters a razor-sharp moment in time that slices a fate-line cleanly into two branches: the doe in the road either moves and survives, or doesn't and doesn't. naturally, of course, these sides of the coin can still speak to one another; however, they can't always hear each other, and not everyone who hears it can recognize it for what it is, and not everyone who recognizes it knows what to do after listening.
and for those of us who could discern something amongst the cacophony-- here we are, making maps that dissolve when they're followed. here we are, replacing contentedness with desire, and desire with something even more terrifying. here we are in the process of a non-linear rising-from-the-ashes of what we didn't become, praying that our songs bring us closer to what we need to be.
