Filtering lights through woven threads
Our body shapes intertwined
Tracing my fingers on your shoulder
Seems warm and kind.
In the wilderness out there
We blew things apart by picking on each other
We needed more than air to keep it together.
When I seal my lips and cut off my ears
Breathing down my neck, you want what I know
Unequivocal to your self-righteous reasons
When you’ve walked to doors just to sell me out.
With my eyes wide open, tears flood my face
A blurry vision deems shadows to be ghosts, in a dark embrace
I know your stance is everything I’m up against
So out of tune, your lullabies ricochet
Choking me with storylines you helped create
Always trying to get your own way
No storm warning, my head bobbing above water
I wouldn’t know what to say.
Oh, snap! What a mighty long, complicated burn.
