I think maybe I would have liked To have been loved gently But I sunk With broken knees at your alter. Pledged Allegiance To a false god Who spoke the Old Testament like it was truth. And the hands that were wrapped around my throat were dipped in holy water So even in death I was blessed. he will preach To all the women he has turned into sin Say -with a soft caress across my check That echos and vibrates off the walls Like the silence after a gun shot. “If you love me you’ll do this” Because manipulation comes easy to him Hand to God he is your salvation And no one will ever love you like he does.
- He can’t be your salvation - Because you already saved yourself
