Laughter Lines/Wrinkles

The flashing lights of your youth causes you epilepsy now

Speeding down the road in a life that you rented

 

At night

The demons and the devil’s vices find you

 

You throw your head back in laughter now

Masking the pain that overwhelms you

And the loss of your young years, to bright lights in the dark and soft thighs in your car

The sweet spreading pillars (of salt) now closed to you

 

Even if you manage to get it back again

You can’t keep up with it now

 

But what about You that chose not to live their youth at all?

Now old and alone

Seeking atonement through being a prayer mat for everyone’s ego

 

Instead of lights, you recoiled into the darkness

Ashamed of your wants and needs

But do you not know angels are servants and not saints?

Even the air you breathe is for everyone’s needs

 

Now your youth is gone , you realise love doesn’t need purity of mind

But now you are scared to revolt, lest you grow horns and go from a fake saint to the Devil incarnate.

 

Youth is always fleeting

Regret is the poison of growth

 

Flourish as you want, as you can – As much as the disabilities you would allow

 

Life did not stop at your youth

It was simply experienced.
