raise the final curtain and hold this flower close stepping into spotlight and punching lines to the rafters a gallow's humor as tired fingers play running along the crooked steps of falling petals the blind stagger of dark passages spoken through baritone bravado hiding tear soaked sighs hiding heartbroken cries a denouement Spiral the path to true happiness is not always a straight line but a centrifuge through spiraling rectitude through veiled verisimilitude just as in nature the nomenclature of carefully laid cartography is only a facsimile of the complexities beneath we feel we are spiraling down we may feel there's no way around but we must remember that the most beautiful things in the world have not path to follow at all.
