Your mind exudes brilliance unlike any other
Air whirls into portals, bridging mine to step into the psyche of the world itself
I find myself peeking into the lens of the world
Every microscopic view for nothing gets past
You, all-encompassing and spiritually driven
Highways come alight with your rapid thoughts
And the universe falls dim in comparison
I am simply disarrayed laundry and you hold every epiphany in your daydreams
Who knows what weight you carry in the grey beneath your eyes?
How many bullets have you sown shut for the world to keep turning?
Gemini, you have tread endless streets
You have watched your cradle burn before your eyes
The strength you seek and wish to reflect
Has been within you all this time
