Requiem for Reality

Political, hypothetical, existential, hypocritical, technological, philosophical, and musical. Or so I've been told.

I heard a melody the other day,
I believe I heard it, then again...
it could have been the wind.

I tried to hum it out,
tried to take it with me,
I tried to hold on to it as it slipped out of my lips...

It sounded like you,
like something you would say to me,
...and then everything was quiet.
