These are the ties that bind
But I don’t know what that means.
Initiated into another realm, I felt more alone.
An outsider granted entrance, but not really sure why.
Novelty and unfamiliarity contrasting with not knowing if I felt what I should.
Part of the club, not knowing the rules
Guessing at what it should mean.
I trusted those who went before, in spite of the secrets I keep.
And standing between pavement and sky
Each black, silent and cold
I raised my eyes and spoke to the stars.
One more promise
One I’d made and broken a thousand times
One I break a thousand times more.
