I do like you admit the tragedy was by your own hand, but it's comforting to know they had been shaking. That's an interesting reflection.

More from Jordan Newman

i see angels above me, i see demons below me, fighting over heaven.
i loved her more when i was sober.
i don't want a second chance.
love starts with that of a flickerin' cigarette
i swear i could feel your love before i knew your name.

soul mates

I used to be deeply infatuated by things like sunshine;
But it’s been so long since I’ve even thought about dawn.
The toils of life led me down a path that is me all alone.
Bound by vices which do nothing but weight me down.
I’m a man whom is older and wiser from losing everyone;
the irony to that tragedy is it had all happened by my own
Hand, but i do find comfort knowing they had been shaking.
With a poker face and stern smirk i acted so daft to the crying
Voices that beckoned me to quit while i was up, to just return
Home while I’m still able to in one piece, not a man that’s broken.
In the worst of my days i longed for melancholia or a feeling
Similar to that, anything other than my unending depression.
It became clear to see that she never planned for our romance
To last longer than one season, that she had faked her passion.
Our relationship is similar to all of those drugs i was consuming,
Empty & decorated with tragedy- the cause behind how I’m living.
Barely aware that I’m partaking in the after math of my decisions.
Now even is somber sobriety i struggle with reasons for breathing,
To make sense of all this- to discover peace in all my chaotic confusion. 2 comments
