Shapes, Flames, and Ropes II
When you look back its so easy to see what you missed
But in the present that awareness simply doesn't exist
So are you more happy now when you taste your lover's kiss?
Or sad that there may be something you didn't know when you future reminisce?
Because in those kisses I never thought there was anything but bliss
And now I'm thinking I'm a fool for not being aware of all the risks
And what you think is here to stay always fades away like the mist
I could believe in something right now and I wouldn't even pause to insist
And only in retrospect think how could I have not thought to resist?
Even the stupidest of our actions are rooted in something more meaningful than broken fists
Because when you look back, you think there couldn't be anything dumber than be pissed
But when you're angry all you can think about is how that feeling only persists
So is any feeling you have even worth it when you know it lacks future significance?

The problem isn't when you are in a situation you that don't have a future view of fairness
It's when I ask "Does that make feeling and doing in the moment beautiful or careless?"
Since you only come to know what was wrong only later and it's important I share this
Because whatever you side with now is in the moment and done without the future's awareness

When I wrote "Shapes, Flames, and Ropes" I thought with every knot there's something more I can learn
But the only thing I've come to realize is that I totally forgot that even the toughest of ropes can burn
