There is a moment when time transcends
and all creativity comes to life
It is this transition between sanity and insanity
sobriety and intoxication
When enlightenment occurs

With only minutes to seize and explore

Entrance into these realms is painless
Absent is the hard, cold, shock of knowledge
Where your thoughts drip off
Sleek icicles of imagination
And hours flow by upon the breeze

Suddenly a realization
a tiny glimpse of inspiration
An incredible truth, lost
in some crevice of remembrance
Familiar eyes poke through strange darkness

All doors become locked again

A stranded recollection, faded postcards from the past
A time since forgotten
teenage lust, sex games, exploration
All is peacful but only for the moment

There's something absent in the air

The dark pressure to create
Where are the demons?
Can you find
the voice
whispering in your mind?

The best years wasted
We missed the dawn
The coming of summer
and to sleep in blissfull slumber

Do you remember when
you thought you knew?
