what if we were made
to enjoy the sin?

etched in my heart,
those words still bleed
every time
someone says your name.

He waited to retire
to take his wife on this trip.
But two years ago,
she died of old age.

So he packed up one bag
and set it by the door.
The next day came and went,
and the bag was still on the floor.

On top of his heart
they found sitting a note.
It said, "I wish I didn't wait,
I didn't think it would be this short."

i found a mystical chamber,
filled with a haze of sweet musk
and its walls adorned
with books of magic

a book chanted my name,
and in its decaying pages lived
a majestic portal to an
entirely new dimension

Someone said God lives in us all.
What dangerous words to speak to these fools.
See, instead of being humbled by such beauty,
they stuck out their chests and toasted to their anointment.

Their reign began soon after.
They took control of life…and sometimes even death.
They made a slave of any man who was not created in their image.
They even beheaded and set aflame the very trees that fed their existence.

Didn’t they notice?
How the print on the bark matched the print on their fingers?
How the same heart that once beat in their prey, beats in their children?
How under this skin, no one could tell a difference?

If only we would all cry when we’re sad
Ask for help when we need it
Wave and smile at every stranger
Play and play when we awaken

If only we would understood
that the answer to life is
to never grow up.

in the middle
of the crowd
is where I feel
most alone.

they ask me
about the weather
and I tell them
of my storm.

theres a tornado
in my head,
a wildfire
in my heart.

they look at me
with regret.
i'm an alien
in their eyes.
