Years ago wisdom taught of quests to royalty. 

Today I'm going to teach you how to fuck things up royally. 

Remember a time when peace and serenity were attainable

Well what happens to a man when the world just piles on

Does he get back up and fight like a moron

Or does he really understand the train that hit him should have been self explainable

When he loves, and loses is he better for having lost love than never loving at all 

Or do we just say that to make ourselves look less stupid after a fall

Do anyone or anything even remotely existential

You'll be fine don't let anyone see you crack you know

They're all vultures waiting to chow on your toes

Protect your heart while you have one

You may one day just find yourself done

With everything and everyone

Longing for a day when people remembered you were born

Truth is you're completely worn

Remember her scent 

See her smile, and her camp with him in your old tent

Remember you never made her that happy

Your emptiness left pieces of you scattered 

Don't ask me why I remember her favourite flavor of salt water Taffy 

Or the men I fit into the category of, her pattern

She's to be married soon

It's not the fire in my bosum that makes me write this lyrical tune. 

It's not the ice cream and memories I wish I could could remove

It's the knowledge that she was never as happy with me

That I will never be able to breathe that joy as much as I may plea

That I am, and was forgotten. 

I do not speak of what you did to me. 

As always you were forgiven. 

The difference between us

I never would have thought to leave you in wreckless abandon 

You chose to throw me in a dungeon
