Faraway fantasies fade into your heart.

Pineapple Express

Why is the next octave of our song a tune trapped in tongue-tied tears,

Why is the next octave of our song a tune trapped in tongue-tied tears, fueled by fears of faraway failures dimmed into downcast days?

Here we are,

Here we are, hopes higher than helium,

Here we are, hopes higher than helium, sensations swifter than stratospheres,

Here we are, hopes higher than helium, sensations swifter than stratospheres, love launched over Luna.

Why does melancholy muster on Mars?

Hello is now a hushed hymn to humanity –

Hello is now a hushed hymn to humanity – You, dear, are a pale blue dot in an ocean of copper and rust.

The dunes try to delight in their dahlia dazzle.

The dunes try to delight in their dahlia dazzle. The lifeless landmarks lull me with their lava lipstick,

into a tempo without time.

Minutes are melodies and hours are harmonies,

Minutes are melodies and hours are harmonies, but Mars is mute in madness.

The blushing bluffs are rows of roses

The blushing bluffs are rows of roses that ripen into a ceaseless swarm of sanguine soldiers.

Perpetual poppy provinces paradiddle into the scarlet sky,

Perpetual poppy provinces paradiddle into the scarlet sky, bleeding beauty as barren as my exhausted exuberance.

As the crimson clouds conceal the cosmic carnival,

As the crimson clouds conceal the cosmic carnival, the flair of my falsetto fantasies of you fades in decay.

These acoustic heartstrings that carved bittersweet breaths

These acoustic heartstrings that carved bittersweet breaths still bloom in your brio of bliss,

These acoustic heartstrings that carved bittersweet breaths still bloom in your brio of bliss, but here,

These acoustic heartstrings that carved bittersweet breaths still bloom in your brio of bliss, but here, they are washed away in whispers like wine.

All weeps and wishes wiped away in the wind,

All weeps and wishes wiped away in the wind, cerise sentiments sent steering into the blank space.

They can rest with you, dear.

All I ask is for you to spread my final dreams to the world,

All I ask is for you to spread my final dreams to the world, like glitter and stardust.

My lyrics are lost in this world.

If this is a step for mankind,

what about me?

(Aside) I'm not so sure how happy I am with how this one turned out, but I am happy to have written this weekend! :) Setting a piece on Mars and having solitude as a theme is something I really craved writing over the past few weeks!

Just to clarify, this piece is not in any way related to any 'Pineapple Express' movie... I had zero clue what that was until I looked it up after the piece. :)

A pineapple express is a meteorological phenomenon, and I would reccomend reading up more on Google if you are interested. :) It relates to the piece in a metaphorical sense.

I originally had the idea of creating a story -- like my last piece, 'Action Figures' -- but I decided to write something more akin to my usual pieces that felt a little more simple, too. Not sure how much I succeeded there, or if that really matters. :)

I hope that you all enjoyed this piece, nonetheless! The basic idea for it has been in my head since my piece 'Cumulus Cloud Castle', so yeah. :)

And just to clarify, it's about an astronaut on Mars that feels lonely, although I will not discuss anything regarding meaning! :D And @tofu_tofu, your piece will come soon. I have ideas for what I want to do with it!

Take care, Commaful, and keep on writing! Stay awesome! <3
