To dance the dance, I never would?
Or to go back to where I once stood?
The place and way that offends thee.
The only truthful one I see.
My truth hurts, what can I do?
I do not want to hurt you.
But I cannot deny this truth.
At a loss, a turn and rewth.
Rendered silent and suppressed.
A marvel reduced to a pest.
Where’s the bridge from here to there?
How can we mend, can we repair?
Walking through as half a man.
That’s without you, understand?
I do not know what I don’t know.
My good intent’s not apropos.
I’m right and wrong at the same time.
Laying hope beneath a rhyme.
Hope that never seems to come.
All alone and cold and numb.
The story told myself’s not true.
Revealed, I know not what to do.
My nature’s here to take me down.
The verb I played was just a noun.
I who knew not of defeat,
Have failed to make that thought complete.
A look beyond this worldly plane.
Take me lord, please end this pain.
