You know those tracks that you put on repeat for days at a time? I came across a new favorite recently. It comes from the incredibly talented Joseph Quintela. The name of the track that I can’t seem to take off repeat is The longest distance
They’re the ones that count…
Ones like this one:
departing from eyes (no longer recognised)
Distracted past; four years without mirrors.
Somehow. I stopped seeking my reflection.
Activated by the sound of clearer.
Divine intervention. Announce begun.
Misdirected worth has shattered. My glass.
Melted and fired into its honest form.
Abuse is like a season, bound to pass.
Aspersion of my expression. Your storm.
Acceptance. It was never my issue.
Locked away in a room without windows.
Claiming identity becomes adieu.
Taking five minutes to soften the blow.
Wishing you well is sincere, every way.
Reacting to ways of defining stay.
