Day 264 (Tracing Time through an Oven Door)


Author Comments

I start to fly

Mispronounce my vows

As I glide

Through this night

You need me to be

Something more

But I am under your earth

No darker than the greyest shade of dirt


Mark my skin with your love

Burn the edge of my tongue

Let the acid rain down on me

And bring me to my knees

I've fallen again and there's nothing around me


Pull me out of this darkened abyss

As we fly through these nights

Hold me close as we grow

Cast away the darkness on our clothes

We see the dream of someone near to us

Fallen and shattered just like our bones

Just like our homes


Read through this grave

Know what you are

Lost and alone

Without hope of ever knowing who you are

Call on me and tell me son, your time is finally done


You step through, and devour all that surrounds you,

Blackened and afraid of what you are,

The black hole inside of your heart,

But you don't remember, the day life changed,

And you felt hate through your veins,

It seemed so long ago, that pain was given a key to this home,

Whenever you knock I open the door

Whenever you cry I want you more


How do I escape?
