Everyday’s someone’s first/last
In between chapters
Captured in whirlwinds/the world wins

Tell me life is more than a collection of memories/experiences
Substance in sufferance
Sustenance in endurance

Stretching and connecting
I feel like a seam
I was awake so long ago
That seems like the dream

And release is just an eyelash away
