Drain the Brain


Wild free open chances and the lights of sudden knowing
Bringing us to the new level
From the innocent to the known

Before we get it
We go from playing the part to playing the game
No longer for fun, but now to win

There is a pause in the spiral
A moment of clarity
When we get that small moment to wake up

If not, we move to the edge
That is a place of service
Where what you did now does you

Some still linger there
Twisting and moaning
Chained by their will in their own deep dark hole

Incredibly evocative.

I have a feeling the final three lines will be snaking their way through my brain for quite a while...

oh how I hope never to be playing to win
as I hope never to play for the end
it is the journey, the playing of the part
that is the joy of it.
to be in the thick of things
not looking forward
or looking back
although afterglow is nice

p.s. you may have a typo in your last line where the second word "my" would perhaps be "by"
rock on

Surprising how much shit one has stored away in the mind, how much it wants out, and how good it feels to let it go.
It is even better if others share in the release!
Rock on!
