I’m
trapped back in time like
a sinner on something sweet;
don’t ask me to move on

(hey,
kaleidoscope eyes never knew left
from right. I’m different, I’m different;
bleeding white and crying black and
flying out in a storm with paper wings)

I fell in love with a broken idol--
bruised throat and splintered fingers,
the most beautiful shade of purple
to ever fade out. He never knew
my name,

maybe I’m dumb.
maybe I forgot the way the world spins backwards
and that happy endings only come from fairytales
rewritten so that children can fall asleep.

in all my years I never quite learned
how to disappear completely,
this sickly escapism justified by the
promise of all my missing pieces:

a runaway’s prayer on shooting stars,
oh, please just take me
away
"A casual stroll through the lunatic asylum shows that faith does not prove anything."
(sort of relevant maybe)
