This is the online journal of Aaron Schmidt where he records his thoughts (when they seem relevant) and his dreams (when he can remember them).

02 February 2002 Her and me

I've crept outside, past the grass, and overtop the hills,
where they find me sleeping is where they'll find the pills.
I've taken all my life away to spin amongst the clouds
and she is there beside me to float above the crowd.

They scream at us, telling us, to come back to the Earth,
but she pulls my body higher and I hold on for all it's worth.
And when we clear the atmosphere, I see the world anew:
a colony of human souls in a concrete woven zoo.

She carries me to heaven to be lost within the stars,
darkness creeping on my skin, light burning into scars.
I've left behind those I love to be the one who dreams
of a world with just her and me and tightly woven seams.

For Aurélie.
