Encore

Splendid anticipation
Dissolved
A repetition of
Un/usual understanding

The final notice
Noticing the
Impossibility of 
Necessary end

Obfuscation of principles
What if I’d fallen under the wheel
Centrifugal survival instinct

They threw me
I caught myself

Every time

Maybe you can’t do that anymore

Every lie becomes truth
In a world turned upside down

4 songs on repeat
Tell you your whole
Story back to you

The possibility of
The pavement that
Wasn’t meant to
Be there
Hitting you
Ending sentient
Expectation

You tried to forget
They came for you
Anyway

If you survive
Tous les morts qui
Ne s’arrêtent jamais

Encore et encore

Elusive promise

No end
