You're a dime a dozen in a sea of billions.
Individuality has no significance in numbers so vast.
And while this fact may make looking forward hard
we can't keep living in the past.
You're a nervous movement in a freeze frame scene.
Steady hands won't help hold up such a fragile act.
And while you take your time keeping character
you fake what you can't take back.

With nothing more than a thought we form our actions
and this is where we extinguish the lie they tried to invent.
The lie that we painted our lives without passion
well conclusions are useless with no attempt to commence.

You're a song I can't name stuck in my head.
I've  listened to you before and probably will again.
And while I can hum the melody all day long waiting
for it to hit me I still won't know where you've been.
You're a gust that has never changed direction.
Nothing can touch you you're only felt as you brush skin.
And while you can't be stopped nothing lasts
nothing escapes time or an end not even the wind.

With nothing more than a thought we form our actions
and this is where we extinguish the lie they tried to invent.
The lie that we painted our lives without passion
well conclusions are useless with no attempt to commence.
watcha think???

I can totally turn this into a song. It would be like a Sleeping with Sirens kind of lonely sounding Guitar, meant to pull on the listeners heartstrings and inspire them head to toe and tell them that the world is beautiful!
This is an amazing poem, and it shall definitely be remembered within the vast brain of mine that constantly struggles for success, inspiration, and peace of mind. You have successfully unblocked my mind for the moment, and I am extremely grateful to have found such a ponderous peace.
Thank you joeyws91!

Oh my god, the Sleeping with Sirens thing got me, that would be amazing. ;w;

Although, this piece is still heart-stoppingly pretty even without the music. Your words describe it wonderfully. 
I give my thanks too, thank you for adding even more incredible art to my life!!

:3 I do think it would be awesome!
I would try to turn it into a song... That is... If I knew how to play guitar... Perhaps, some time I will. That is with this mans' permission!

This is a seriously good read, and I love how it flows off the tongue.  It has a specific rhythm that's just . .  well . .  appealing!  Very deep, and I definitely feel you deserve the daily deviation (congrats on that, btw!)

"You're a song I can't name stuck in my head.

That was good

I liked that, a lot. You should check out my song "Buy or bounce"
we have similar writing styles, maybe chat sometime?
