Invisible Lines

from Reattachment by Dan Jacob Wallace

lyrics

there is a line invisible and when it merges
with a curve it makes a world inside a word

i never thought about your world till my own’s demise
then i saw what it is worth to keep open lines
though I still think it’s a curse they don’t intertwine
i’m not speaking of a cross
i hate those symbols
when i talk i want to swallow every thought

well, i guess you had to be there to know
what it was like being
people trying hard to find a shining beacon
buried within them
digging through each other
cloning one another
doing things that half-way rhyme with loving
oh, i know that it’s a stretch for you
try imagining the world that i once knew

there is a line we never touch
you stay behind I stay in front
we’ll cut it when we’ve had enough

i never saw the wall of glass until it cracked in half
i never thought about the past till it came crashing back
then i missed what i once had, i missed what made me sad
though i really must confess
that even though it was a mess
i never have any regrets

well, i guess you had to be there to know
what it was like being
someone trying hard to find a little needle
buried in people
running from each other
chasing one another
doing things that half-way rhyme with loving
oh, i know that it’s a stretch for you
i’ll try imaging the worlds that you’ve known too

there is a line invisible
it wraps around my neck and yours
we pull a constellation bull
