Every song has a reason

That

Anguish

Of yours

Most of it’ll

Go soon enough

Although it

Never feels that way

When you’re in it

Does it?

Skeptical

Bird

Numbness

Finds

We know this

You will

Make your way

To a day

When

What was said

Goes away

& all that’s left

Is the ambiguity

Of living

A welcome

Distraction

From what

You were given

That harmony

That melody

You sing to

Yourself

Anguished

Creature

Every song

Has a reason
