Take As Directed
Author: Meridian Zuriel


When I think of you
I think of a sky so pink
Makes me numb as I drink
From the fountain of youth

I spring along the hard surface
Twirling until dizzy

Lean back
What's that?
Strange sounds from beyond the abyss
Still opportunities miss
Out on good people

Common goal
Take control
Guard your soul
Evil is lurking

Watch your back
You're under attack
Mind on autopilot
Can't distinguish fiction from fact
We're all in the red, instead of the black
Wish I could rewind the clock back
But I know better than that
It'll be worse than where I'm at


That's the prettiest balloon you ever did see
White mixed with red did this to me
I know not what it means to have boundaries
I write my own prescription without studying pharmacy
And every time, I'm alleviated
Elevated and emancipated

I forget how I got from point A to point B
I'm so far gone that I become my fantasy
Transcending land and see
From here to eternity
