Crucible of flesh of my arm
I place in your soft hands dear.
I will change for you I swear
the old me will just disappear.
You don’t know the chasms
I’ve been down the street feet
mine bleed I have felt a heat.
Destroy this toy I call a heart
even if it needs to be discreet.
I can’t travel this world girl I
try and your memory keep.
Don’t let me wander in dark
where there I prepare to dare
think my love was unrequited
and I was to be left in despair.
Take this paper and this pen
svelte is felt I guess I impress
the rest of my best guess I try
write how much love I confess.
My lonely stature is a fracture
you see in the distance let go.
Walk approach me see please
my heart will always you know.
My days are in a haze and I cry
with ink threaded under my skin
that the crucifix disfigured late in
my life will ever wear so thin.
My name honor has been treaded
lead me forward take my blood
from my veins insane I try contain
tears flowing like some flood.
