UPDATE

Updated: Feb 24, 2019



After speaking with Bill Douglas of World Tai Chi and Qi Gong Day, I felt the push to do something creative. We discussed flow state and the holistic mind quite a bit. Continuing the theme of connections between people, I was thinking about the connections that were never made, such as unrequited love or chances that were never taken. So, I synthesized that into a feeling which I've so far turned into words but not sounds.

This one's called Butterflies Uncaught.

Butterflies Uncaught

Two doors and a window

Empty room, full of shadows

Of what we once were

Of what we will never be

Both locked, caught a glimpse though

Through a crack in the window

Of what I could’ve been

Of what I wanted to see

Unborn memories

Thoughts never thought

Caged birds flying free

Butterflies uncaught

Forgotten loves, unrequited

Un-promised, undecided

The ember never burnt

Never learns to glow

The dark of fear fills the air now

No eyes to see, we’re scared now

Of what we could’ve been

Of what we wanted to know

Unborn memories

Thoughts never thought

Caged birds flying free

Butterflies uncaught

Unborn memories

Thoughts never thought

Caged birds flying free

Butterflies uncaught

Let them go

Let them go

Let them go

Let them go

Let them go

Let them go

Two doors and a window

Empty room, full of shadows

Of what we once were

Of what we will never be
