lights in the mist.
And I don’t want to be when and where the angels fall, weeping and gnashing for them all, lack of repentance; a fantastic appall
I don’t want to be when I’m without you no matter what you do, you could lie to me through and through, you could kiss her the way I kiss you
...With color, shape, and feeling...
Yours used to leave me reeling, now I find myself nightly kneeling, strongholds and principles violently peeling and there’s a line in the sand
Loyalty and love went hand-in-hand, our romance was a candyland, full of golden flecks like the river panned, like shining flakes in schnapps
As soon as the cap from your canister pops, it’s like time stands still, it’s like the world stops, that first precious inhale and my heartbeat DROPS, pounding ever so shallowly
Nicking my throat, blood does occur, as I swallow what we finally were, turning my song voice into a guttural purr, inside it’s not my heart that’s astir, but a teeming, insatiable thirst
For the one that I have come to put first, the one that threatens to make my lungs burst, the one that pollutes the breath against which my lips are pursed and there are no lights in the mist
I’m balled as tightly as a fist, wrap the leather around the wrist, tightly now before I’m missed, before aerosol takes me away
You’re more than my habit, you’re the only way, you’re the light at the end, you’re the bright of new day, you’re everything I wish I could say, you’re all I want to consume
… And with you in my heart, there is no more room
