Going backwards on our words,
Our laws as a nation, as a power stripped from us.
Bans against abortion, against the only thing we own,
With restrictions on our clothing, or the words we use,
To speak ...
We burn inside for our sins
And crave the flame on our skin,
With scars on our wrists We never learn to heal.
It’s getting harder to breathe,
Inside my chest the heart is cold,
And I will never know,
The tired eyes, and broken lips,
They kiss your face in the moonlight mist.
The fingers search for a touch
To calm the crave within.
And the thoughts..
Oh, my love, they are suffocating me.
Trying to ...
We start from scratch with nothing to hold onto,
We crawl and pull and beg,
For something we worked so hard to get.
And we feel it, for a split second,
How the weight of the world has been lifted.
And you are walking through life
With half shut eyes
Missing moments worth stopping the time.
With numbness tingling your fingers,
Your heart is still beating hard.
With pain flowing through your vein...
It is bound to happen,
To fail and hit rock bottom,
Because we are human, And we can’t choose to undo it.
We feel it ‘til our bones hurt,
And we crave it ‘til our soul learns to love,
To love the pain...
