Ask 4: A Hollow Shell In A Fragile State, - Poem by David Lacey

Take away to break away
From routine cast or set in stone.
Lost so far from home,
We’re scared of shadows in the night.
Always straying from the light,
Forever to know no wrong from right.
Fight the good fight,
Listen to the dictations of your heart,
There is no other who knows where to start.

When we’re slipping into the void,
Don’t get annoyed when they say to you,
All the lies we spread were true
Your looking at me, I’m looking through you,

A hollow shell in a fragile state,
No memory or fate,
Never early never late,
Always and forever,
Seeking hidden treasures,
We don’t get no promises from heaven,
Turning circles in the day for leisure.


The day is done, the race been run,
Another way to blue
Back again, for you my friend,
I said id see it through

Always one more,
One more
Time to see it through
